Becoming a nursing assistant is a way may future nurses enter the medical profession. For you to be a certified nursing assistant you need to enroll in a state approved training program. These programs should offer 100 hours of combined instruction covering classroom coursework and hands-on experience. After you pass a nursing assistant training program, you have to take a license examination. Most programs will take you about 2 to 6 months to finish.
There are plenty of opportunities for you in the medical field. By becoming a CNA alone will open a great variety of jobs that fall under one profession. Nurse aide certifications for this state are considered to be only a basic certification. There are several different other advance degrees that you can take after you get your certification.
• GNA (Geriatric Nurse Aide) – this certification is a requirement for all those who want to work in a certified comprehensive care facility.
• CMA (Certified Medicine Aide) – this is another degree that you can place on top of your first certification. You can also become a CMA once you have become GNA and have achieved the needed working hours.
• Dialysis Technician – is a certification that is required by the state to be able to work at any dialysis unit in the state.
Each of these certifications will require their own set of requirements that will need to be complied with before they can practice as one. The expiration of these licenses will also be on the same date as of their nurse aide license expiration. For more information, you can contact the Maryland Board of Nursing at 410-585-1990.
