How Do I Become A Certified Nursing Assistant?
To become a certified nursing assistant, you need to complete an accredited CNA program. It's recommend you complete the CNA training where you wish to apply for your CNA state license just to ensure the training you receive is relevant within the state. To get into a CNA program, you may or may not need your high school diploma because this will depend on the program entry requirements. We suggest you visit the website of the school you plan on attending to get a complete breakdown of the requirements.
Once you have completed your training from an accredited program successfully, then you need to sit for the CNA examination within the state you plan on working. For example, if you live in California and plan on working as a CNA within the state of California, you will have to successfully pass the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program.
