To become a CNA, you must be able to enroll in and complete a training program. These programs are offered by colleges and nursing homes, as well as other institutions. The program you enroll in should be approved by the state so that you can apply for the license exams once you are through with your training. To graduate from a program, you must have at 100 hours of training and classroom lectures and 16 hours of clinical duty that provides hands-on skills training. In your training program you must learn 25 different basic nursing related skills. While you are still a student, you will be exposed to a clinical setting and handle actual residents/patients. You will be placed under the supervision of a registered nurse while you are having your clinical experience. This is thought to develop a strong foundation for the chosen career of the student.
When applying for the license exams you must send in your application with the needed documents such as a copy of your transcripts, fingerprint cards, ID photo, passport size picture, and the payment for the exam fees. You are also required to provide your immunization records to and undergo physical exams to test that you are physically capable of handling patients/resident and do not have any communicable diseases. Those who finished other nursing courses like RNs and LPNs are allowed to directly apply for the license exams.
The license exams are composed of a written and a skills evaluation. You can also request for an oral exam for your first part instead of a written exam. When you pass the license exam, your name will be entered in the state’s registry and you will receive your license from the Department of Public Health. Ti get your license, you must pass all the exams.
