New Jersey CNA Training

Being a great start into the medical field, becoming a Certified Nurse Aide in New Jersey is becoming increasingly popular. If you have your high school diploma or GED and are at least 18 years old, you may be qualified to become a CNA. New Jersey CNA training requirements involve finding a program approved by the New Jersey Department of Health, completing the program, and passing an exam.

Many New Jersey CNA schools programs can last anywhere from 8 to 13 weeks. In order to enroll in the class you will have to be fingerprinted, supply a current background check, and supply a photo identification. You might also need to prove you have been immunized and have a negative TB test within the last half of a year. The training involves 75 hours of classroom training, then an additional 100 hours of clinical training. All of this helps to prepare you for the CNA exam, which will test your knowledge and clinical skills before awarding you the certification.

Once you become certified, you can have your name listed on the New Jersey Nurse Aide Registry. You may then be able to start applying for CNA jobs around the state.

The New Jersey CNA certification requirements can be met by most individuals who are dedicated to breaking into the medical field as a nurse’s aide. Start looking for a program in your area if assisting patients and nurses in various medical facilities appeals to you.
