There are a number of requirements that you must meet to become a nursing aide in Illinois. Among them, one of the most important is being able to finish a state-approved CNA course. If you complete a state-approved program, you will become eligible to apply for the license exams.
To ensure that you will become eligible, you should only enroll in a program that is approved by the state. Other means of becoming eligible is by enrolling in a nursing course or training as a medic in the military. As a nursing aide student, you will be taught different concepts of the Fundamentals of Nursing, which you will use to take care of the patients. You will also be trained on the basic nursing skills like assisting in ROM exercises, doing proper hand washing, offering and removing bedpans, assist in feeding through special means like NGTs. To complete your training, you must have at least 40 hours of clinical training.
