Nursing Assistant Questions and Answers

I have a certificate in Medical Assisting and will be attending nursing school this August to become a registered nurse. I am wondering if I will be able to challenge the CNA exam around October or November. Any help would be appreciated.As far as I know, a nursing student enrolled in a licensed practical nurse (LVN) or registered nurse (RN) program is eligible to challenge the CNA state exam as long as they have completed the basic nursing fundamentals course. Both the theoretical and practical parts of the course must be completed and official school transcripts are needed for verification. As soon as you meet this criteria you may sit for the nurse aide competency evaluation. You can make sure that this information is correct by calling the nurse aide registry for your state.

I am a coordinator/case manager for students who are interested in building their job training and education (High School and GED). Many women who go through our program are interested in taking CNA classes. However, recently a young lady who, I am assisting, is looking to renew her CNA certificate. How long is the CNA certificate valid for?

CNA certificates are valid for two years in most states. A nurse aide must show proof of paid work in a licensed nursing home or facility in order to renew her credentials. If you need further assistance with renewal information feel free to contact me again. Please include the state where she became certified as a nurse aide.
