The first step in becoming a nursing assistant is the completion of a nursing assistant training program that is approved by the state of Colorado. For a program to be approved it must provide at least 80 hours in both lectures and hands-on skills training. Their hands-on training can either be conducted in a hospital or a nursing home. They will have the opportunity to work closely with the healthcare team and see what it is like to take care of different patients. While they are in the clinical area they will be under the supervision of a registered nurse and will not be allowed to perform procedures that were not taken up during the classroom lectures and training.
The completion of a training program is a requirement in taking the NNAAP exams. You cannot work in the state without a license, which means that you must pass the license exams and get your name in the state’s nurse aide registry to find work. To protect the interest of the patients, you must pass the background checks that are done at federal and state level. You must also undergo immunization and physical exams to determine that you are not a carrier of any communicable disease. Other requirements for the exams include the submission of the complete application forms, ID photo, fingerprint cards, and paying the exam fees.
