By becoming a nursing assistant, you gain entry into the medical field. The demand for nursing assistants nowadays has been increasing and is believed to continue to rise for the coming years. It is the perfect opportunity for you to become certified in this profession.
To be able to work as a nursing assistant, you must have a CNA license, which you can only get by passing the NNAAP examinations. Before you are able to take the exams, you will need to apply for it and one of the requirements when applying is proof that you have completed a state-certified program. Programs and trainings that were done in other states will not be considered and you will not become eligible to apply for the exams.
The exams are conducted by a company called Pearson Vue. They provide two tests which are a written multiple choice test and a skills exam. For the written part you must answer 70 multiple choice questions. For the skills exam you will be required to demonstrate 5 specific tasks chosen at random. You can learn more about the competency exams or set up a time to take them by calling Pearson Vue at 1-888-204-6213.
If you did complete your training in a different state, it is highly suggested that you take the exams in the state that you are in and apply for reciprocity afterwards. When you apply for reciprocity, you will be required to show proof of your certification/license and pass the criminal background checks. These checks will be done in both Federal and state levels.
The process of reciprocity consists of submitting the proper form, paying a $26 fee and paying a testing fee of $101. You can speak to a representative of the MS State Department of Health through their phone line at 601-364-1100 to get further information.
