Training programs must be authorized by the state and you should ensure they are accepted before enrolling. CNA classes are required to offer 75 hours of health care instruction and 100 hours of on-the-job skills practice.
Those who feel they are experienced enough to challenge the competency exam outright may qualify to get a letter of approval from the registry in order to avoid taking a course. You can call the MO Department of Health and Senior Services at 573-526-5686 to find out more.
It is not enough that you have your name on the NA Registry to be able to work as a CNA in any state, especially in Missouri. To be allowed to work, you must have an active license status. Nurse aide certifications/licenses will only remain active for up to two years. Before it expires, you will need to renew it to be able to continue working.
To do this, you must have worked for a minimum of 8 hours as a paid nursing assistant in a licensed healthcare facility. If you have failed to work during that time then your status will be changed into inactive. If your employment break has reached up to years, your inactive status will be changed into an expired status.
To reactivate an inactive status, the individual will only need to take and pass an evaluation examination. Expired licenses can no longer be reactivated. If the individual wishes to work, they he/she must undergo retraining and retake the license exams again.
