One of the requirements to become a nursing aide in Kansas is to be able to complete your training from a state-approved program. These programs are found almost everywhere in the state due to its high demand. These programs are open to anyone who wishes to start a career as a nursing aide. Keep in mind that although they are open, each program will have different requirements that you must meet in order to enroll.
These courses are required by the state to offer at least 90 hours of training. Your training will be composed of classroom instructions and skills training. Depending on the program you select, it will take you about 8 to 13 weeks to graduate from the program.
Graduating from these programs will make you eligible to apply for the license exams. These exams are handled by Pearson Vue. If you pass the test, your name will be entered in the registry and you will get your license to practice. If you are already a CNA from a different state and are applying through reciprocity, you will still be required to take the exams again. Call the Kansas Nurse Aide Registry at (785) 296-6877 for further details about qualifications necessary to become certified to work.
