Becoming a nursing assistant in the state of Minnesota is not so challenging and the requirements are very similar to those of other states. The first step is to enroll and finish a nursing assistant training program. The program should be state-approved.
Before you enroll in CNA training classes you will want to ensure it is approved by the state. These programs are required by the Federal government to offer a total of 75 hours of training and may only use either the curriculum approved by the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities or the one by the American Red Cross.
Once you are though with the program, your next step is to take the state exams. The exam is made up of two parts, in which, you must pass both parts to get your license. The exams are composed of a written examination and a return demonstration of the basic nursing competency skills. You are allowed two hours to take the written portion which contains seventy multiple choice questions. During the manual skills demonstration you will need to adequately perform five different skills successfully. For the applicant’s name to be entered on the Registry, the applicant must be able to pass all the exams. The competency exams are handled by Pearson Vue. You can call them with questions regarding testing at 1-800-274-0504.
For those who are already working as a nursing assistant at a licensed facility, they must complete a program and pass the competency exams all within 4 months. If they try to challenge the competency exams without enrolling in a program, they will not have the normal 4 months. The licensed facility will have to ensure that the individual they hired is competent in handling patients.
