Passing the CNA license exams is the only way for you to get your name on the Nurse Aide Registry. Only those whose names are on the Registry and have an active status will be allowed to work in a long-term care facility as a nurse aide. Those who are applying for Interstate Endorsement are also required to pass the license exams.
The first part of the license exams is the written exam. This exam will cover the different theories that were taught in the training programs. If you are poor at reading, the examiner or an assistant may read the exam questions and the multiple choices to you. The reader may only say, in a natural tone of voice, what is on the test paper.
The second part of the exams is the return demonstration of the basic nursing skills and procedures. Out of all that were taught to you in the training program, only a few will be randomly selected to be performed. There will be a checklist that will contain the important points for each procedure. You will need to do what is on the checklist in order to pass satisfactorily.
To get your name on the Registry, you will need to pass both the written and the skills exam. If you fail in one, you may retake immediately the part that you failed, if the examiner allows it.
