If you’re interested in becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant, or CNA, please note that training requirements vary from state to state. While many states follow similar models for the certification, Vermont differs, and you’ll want to be sure to familiarize yourself with all aspects of Vermont nurse aide training prior to embarking on this profitable new career.

First, unlike many states, a high school diploma is not a prerequisite for starting CNA training in the State of Vermont. You do, however, have to hold at least a GED in order to begin coursework.  It’s also important to note that in Vermont, this career is generally referred to as “Licensed Nursing Assistant,” as opposed to the more common “Certified Nursing Assistant” title used in most states.

To achieve certification, you must successfully complete a total 75 hours of training in both a classroom and clinical setting. You must also complete, and pass, a separate three-hour training course on basic nursing skills. You also must finish a total of 30 hours of clinical work under the direct supervision of a Registered Nurse, or RN, in addition to successfully passing basic courses in English and grammar, health and biology.

Once you complete your training, you must pass the Vermont LNA exam, which includes both a written question-and-answer section and a hands-on skills assessment component. Upon successful completion, you may get your LNA certification, and then be added to the state registry. Please note that, should you fail to achieve a passing grade after taking the state exam three times, you must redo the entire training process.
