Taking the license exams for this state is the final step in becoming a nursing assistant. This is an important step since you cannot work in Florida as a nursing assistant if you do not have a CNA license. Before you can take the exams you have to apply first but to be eligible you must complete a training program that is certified by the state. You must also be free of records that may prevent you from working as a nursing assistant like thefts or violence. The background checks will be done at both federal and state levels.
After you get permission to take the exams, your fist test will be the written portion. In this part, you will be given 90 minutes to answer all the questions. The exam will have 60 multiple-choice questions where 10 of them will be pretest questions. These 10 will not be scored since they are placed there for statistical purposes. You topics will cover about the different roles of a nursing assistant, how to promote safety, and how to promote the resident’s function and health.
In the skills evaluation, a nurse aide evaluation will observe you as you perform 5 randomly selected nursing procedures. These procedures will be selected by a computer from a list of 22 nursing procedures. You will be shown the list and the checkpoints for each procedure before the start of the exam. These checkpoints will serve as a basis for scoring you if you performed each procedure satisfactorily.
