There are two ways to become a CNA in Mississippi. One is the take the NNAAP exams while the other is to apply for reciprocity. The second option however, is only available for those who are already nursing assistants and are currently registered in a different state.
Reciprocity is the process in which a nursing assistant is transferred to a state and is given the power to practice and work as a nursing assistant in Mississippi. When they apply, they must have an active status or license on their state’s NAR. Their records must also be free of any accounts of negligence, malpractice, abuse, or misappropriation of the patient’s or resident’s property. They should also be able to pass both the federal and state criminal background checks.
The NNAAP examination is designed to evaluate the individual’s capacity to become a nursing assistant. It tests the applicants in both knowledge and skills since it is composed of a written/oral exam and a return demonstration on the basic nursing skills. Only by passing all the tests will the applicants name be then entered on the state’s NAR. Pearson Vue handles the examination and can be contacted to schedule a test date at 1-888-204-6213.
One of the requirements to be allowed to take the exams is to complete a 130-hour training class that is approved by the state. Classes will teach you the fundamental health care procedural theory and offer you skills practice using common nursing tasks in a clinical setting.
