How Soon Can I Write The CNA Examination In California?



I'm set to graduate from the program in about a month from now. Is there a waiting period after program completion before I can write the Nurse Aide Competency examination? My friend told me I will have to write 6 months before I can write the exam. 🙁

Thanks for your comment and congrats on completing the CNA training program. You can apply to write the certified nursing assistant examination almost immediately after successfully passing the program. The school where you are attending your program have either on-site testing or will help you fill out the application once you have completed their course. 

Once you have mailed in your application to obtain a testing date and made the payment, you should receive a date back within 1-2 weeks from the time you mailed in your application. Here is some additional information you should take a look at because you are so close to completing your program - Nurse Assistant Certification Exam Information
