CNA Classes in Rhode Island

Those seeking for a career in a growth industry with excellent job security, then you may want to consider becoming a certified nurse’s assistant, but before you do, it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with Rhode Island CNA class requirements.

Rhode Island requires that students finish their training within 90 days. Luckily, many programs last fewer than two months. Be sure to choose a program that is state accredited, or you wont be eligible to take the certification exam. Rhode Island CNA programs must include a minimum of 100 hours that is divided between classroom instruction and practical, hands-on experience in a medical facility.

In addition, you are required to pass a criminal background check and meet the required minimum age of 18. You must also hold a high school diploma or high school equivalency. During training you will learn a number of new skills, including medical terminology, emergency training and phlebotomy.

When you complete the training, you will need to demonstrate your competency by passing the CNA certification test, which is usually conducted at the training facility for a small fee. During this test, you must demonstrate your new skills to a nurse, who will evaluate your performance. In addition, there is written portion made up of 50 questions.

Once you pass the test, you will be fully-qualified to work as a CNA, but you must first apply for a Certificate of Registration, which will list you on the registry. You will then have passed all Rhode Island  training requirements and will be free to conduct your job search.
