You cannot become a CNA in Indiana if you are unable to pass the final exams. Passing the exams is the only way for you to get your name entered in the state’s Nurse Aide Registry. The state does not allow a nursing aide to work in a healthcare facility if his or her name is not in the Registry. Before you are allowed to take the exams, you must first comply with the prerequisites. To become eligible to apply for the exams, you will need to complete a ISDH recognized training program. You can find these programs almost in any place in Indiana because of the high demand for the profession. At this time the instruction requirements are 75 hours of skills experience in a nursing environment, and 30 hours of class course work. Aside from enrolling in a program, those who enrolled in a nursing course may also apply. They must have enough nursing credits and meet the minimum hours required for the clinical duties.
Completion of the training requirements enables you to submit an application to schedule a time to take the certification exams. Once you have successfully taken the test you will be placed on the state registry and become eligible to be hired to work in the state. Nurse aides from other state are also welcome to work in the state. All that they need to do is to apply for reciprocity. When they apply, they should have a good relationship with their state and have a valid license. If their state does not issue licenses, their name should at least be in their Nurse Aide Registry. Call the Indiana State Department of Health Division of Long Term Care for additional help regarding registry requirements at (317) 233-7442 or
