A nursing assistant is a person who gets paid to routinely render to patients the basic nursing services. According to the law, all nursing assistants working in a healthcare facility must be registered and have an active license.
To get one, you will need to challenge and pas the CNA certification exams, which are only available to those who have received proper education and training. If you have none, then you will need to find a nursing assistant program to enroll in. These programs last for up to 6 weeks. To complete the required 130 hours of training, you must be present in all training sessions. Your training will be composed of a theory and clinical duties.
When you complete your training, you may then ask from your training program the application forms for the exams. You can also call the NACES and request for one. Aside from submitting the application form, you will also be required to send in proof of your training and the results of your background checks. To pass the background checks, you must not have any records of neglect, abuse, or misappropriation of a patient’s property. The last one is generally applicable for those who were already involved in healthcare. For more information, you can go visit www.pearsonvue.com since they are the ones who are conducting the exams. You can also call directly to speak with a customer representative of Pearson Vue to set up a testing date by calling 1-888-204-6213.
Those who have previously been certified or those who are licensed in another state may qualify for reciprocity. This will allow the applicant to take the certification exams without the need of retaking the training portion of the requirement. To qualify you will need to submit a reciprocity fee of $26.00 and the test fee of $101.00. The applicant must pass both the written and clinical skills part of the test in one attempt or be required to retake a training program. You can learn more about the current qualifications required to become licensed by calling the Mississippi State Department of Health at 601-364-1100.
