Only those whose names are in the state’s Nurse Aide Registry are allowed to work in healthcare facilities as nursing assistants and handle patients. One way of getting your name entered in the registry is by passing the state’s competency exams.
Before you are able to take the exams, you must first become eligible and apply for it. Passing a state certified training program is one of the methods to become eligible to apply. You have the option of either enrolling in a CNA training program or a nursing course. Either way, you must have a total of 40 hours of clinical training when you complete your program. During your clinical practice you will get hands-on experience in a nursing facility or medical care setting using common tasks so you will know exactly how to perform the job.
The certification programs in this state are offered by different institutions like high schools, and community training centers, as well as certain healthcare facilities. When you are looking for a program, you must make sure that the program is approved by the state. Depending on the program you enroll in, you can complete your training in a matter of 24 weeks.
Nursing assistants from other states are also welcome to work here. They can get their name entered in the registry by applying for reciprocity. When they apply, they will need to submit the appropriate application form, which can be downloaded at www.idph.state.il.us/nar/home.htm. When they apply, their license should still be valid. They must also have a good relationship with the state they come from.
