To become a nursing assistant, you must receive the proper training. This means that you are required by the state to enroll in a Nurse Aide Training Program or NATP. To ensure that you will get the proper training, you should only select a program that is approved by the GMCF. These programs can be found throughout the state and are offered by different institutions like technical colleges, high schools, and community training and healthcare centers. It takes about 2 to 6 months, depending on the program you select, to complete your training.
After completing the training, you will become eligible to apply for the CNA license exams. If you pass all the tests, your name will be entered in the state’s Nurse Aide Registry and you will get your license. You must maintain this status if you want to be able to apply for long-term work in any healthcare facility. The nurse aide licenses in this state must be renewed every 2 years. When applying, the applicant must submit the appropriate recertification forms which can be downloaded through the internet. According to the Federal Regulations, you must have worked for at least 8 hours with pay for the past 2 years. If you failed to meet this, you have to undergo retesting to maintain your status in the registry.
