How to I obtain a nursing assistant certificate?


Answer by  LVN2RN (10)

The requirements to become a nursing assistant vary depending on where you live, so the best way to get started is to check the State website for licensing of nurses. Many community colleges or vocational schools will also be able to provide you with the specific requirements needed to obtain one.

The Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) training program runs a few weeks to a few months, depending on where the training is offered. Upon completion of training, students must pass a two-part exam (written and practical). The state licenses CNAs. The licensing agency varies from state-to-state. Do a search in Google for classes, exam details and state licensing info.

You can go to any of your local technical colleges, and check to see if they offer the program. The program is only a few weeks long.

Many Adult Schools and Vocational Schools have nursing assistant programs. The programs train you in what you need to know about working as a nursing assistant with lecture, hands on training an internship, after you have completed the course you will take a test given by the state.

You can attend college for Medical Assisting, or Nursing Assisting. Some places or hospitals will offer apprenticeships that will help you offset the cost of school. The training involved can be expensive because even though you just need a certificate, it's still considered a type of college coursework and you will have to pass tests.

CNAs must complete the required course of training, which lasts anywhere from eight to 16 weeks, depending on the schedule. Candidates must then pass the state licensing exam.
