Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) receive training and certification in fundamental patient care abilities, allowing them to work in an entry-level role in the nursing sector with a variety of job prospects. CNAs work in hospitals, medical offices, private health care institutions, Alzheimer and mental health facilities, nursing homes, rehabilitation and independent living centers, assisted living facilities, dialysis centers, clinics, home care companies, private duty, and schools. The most significant characteristics for those entering this burgeoning area are strong interpersonal communication skills, a nurturing and loving disposition, and a high standard of ethics and professionalism, owing to the intimate nature of the work.

No, by law you must test through the State of Florida to become a certified CNA.

After you successfully complete the CNA Prep course, Southern Technical Institute will provide you with a document of completion and you will have the knowledge and tools to pass the required State exam. The purpose of the CNA Prep course is to prepare you to successfully pass the State exam without attending the more expensive 120 hour Nursing Assistant program.

The State CNA certification exam is administered through Prometric. On the first day of your CNA Prep class, your instructor will help you complete the application correctly. You will send your application and fees to Prometric directly.

Anyone with or without formal (diploma program) healthcare training may sit for the Florida Certified Nurse Assistant exam. Because the CNA Test Prep course is not a Florida Board of Nursing-accredited diploma program, we are able to cut training time and associated expenses. When you sit for the Florida Nurse Assistant test as a challenger, you will receive the same state examination as all other candidates. Without completing a state-approved nurse assistant program, an individual is limited to three attempts to challenge the CNA State exam.

No, the Florida Board of Nursing does not need you to complete any training before to taking the examination. Even with prior experience as a nurse assistant, though, passing the exam can be quite tough. The examination is delivered in accordance with State norms, and many experienced healthcare practitioners develop "working" habits that differ from the testing requirements, affecting their ability to challenge the state exam successfully. It's critical to emphasize that you only have three chances to dispute the CNA State exam. After three failed attempts, you will be obliged to enroll in a lengthy state-approved Nurse Assistant diploma program.
