You will need to comply with the state’s requirements if you wish to become a nursing assistant. First of all, you have to enroll in a CNA training program in order to learn the needed knowledge and skills that you will use to take care of the patients/residents. You can find that these programs are found all over the state being offered by different training centers.
Most of the programs found in the state can be completed in a matter of a few weeks. You just have to make sure that the program you select is approved by the state. Programs will offer classes on the fundamental of nursing skills and care and you will learn the basics of working in a health care facility. You are going to be required to finish a set of hours (currently set at 30 hours of class instruction and 75 hours of clinical practice), before you can take the certification exams.
After you complete your training, you can then request for the CNA Final Examination forms from your training center. After completing it, you can then send in your application to the board along with the needed documents such as ID photo, fingerprint cards, and the results for your background checks. If you fail any of the state or federal background checks for criminal records, you will not be allowed to proceed and take the exams. Having records such as theft, abuse or a person or drugs can be cause for the rejection of your application.
The license exams are handled by the Ivy Tech Community College. Their exams are made up of two parts, a written and a skills demonstration. In order to get your name entered in the state’s registry, you will need to pass both parts of the exam. The ISDH Registry requires all nurse aide licensees to work at least 8 hours for each two year time period at a licensed health care facility in order to remain in good standing. For more information about the exams, you can call the college at (317) 917-5948.
