It is important that before you handle patients, you should learn all the important things that a nursing aide should know. You can only do this by enrolling in a CNA training program. To make sure that your training will be proper, you should enroll only in a program that is approved by the Georgia Medical Care Foundation. This is the private contractor that oversees all the NATPs and the state’s Nurse Aide Registry.
You can only get your name entered in the registry if you passed the license exams. This of course means that you have met all the prerequisites to apply for the exams. You should also maintain this status if you wish to be eligible to apply for jobs on long-term basis. If you are already working as a nursing assistant, without the proper documents, you should enroll in a program and take the exams within 4 months from the start of your work.
CNA licenses in this state require that it must be renewed every two years. Federal rules states that the applicant must have worked for at least 8 hours with pay to apply for recertification. If the applicant has failed to meet this, he/she must undergo reexamination to remain in the state’s Nurse Aide Registry. If more than 3 years has passed from the last renewal of the license, the applicant must undergo retraining by enrolling again in a state-approved training program. Call (800) 414-4358 to speak with the state registry to find out more about recent certification requirements, and licensing information.
