One of the main requirements to become a nurse aide in Maine is to be able to complete a training program. Although each of these programs has its own set of requirements for enrollment, they also have similar ones. For example, to be accepted, you will need to be at least 16 years old, a graduate from the 9th grade and be free of certain cases that may prevent you from practicing in the state. In addition applicants must not have a criminal background and will need to undergo a screening process.
As a nursing assistant student, you will spend a total of 180 hours in classroom instructions, skills training, and clinical duties. Before you will be allowed to go on your clinical rotation, you will need to get good ratings in your lectures and skills training. It is very important that the patients will only get top quality care from their healthcare providers.
By completing a state-certified program, you will become eligible to apply for the license exams. Taking the license exams is an important step since it will be the only way for you to become eligible to work in the state as a CNA. Nurses may also directly apply for the exams if they wish to become a nursing assistant. Once listed on the registry with active status you will need to renew your listing every 24 months. This is accomplished by submitting a renewal form along with required documentation. Call the Licensing and Regulatory Services toll free phone line at 1-800-791-4080 to learn more about requirements for you to remain in good standing.
