The first step in becoming a certified nursing assistant in Tennessee is to enroll in a state-approved CNA Class. Prior to enrollment, expect that you’ll have to undergo a background check and complete a physical exam. Once enrolled in a program, you will be required to complete at least 75 hours of training, 16 of which must be completed in a clinical setting in addition to your classroom studies.

Students should expect CNA classes in Tennessee to include everything from the nuts and bolts of nurse-aide duties to a study of its more emotional components, such as providing hospice care or advocating on behalf of patients and their families.

Once you have successfully completed the training, you can register to take the Tennessee state exam. You’ll also want to prepare a resume so that you may start looking for a job just as soon as you become certified. Be sure that your resume reads clearly and that it highlights your training, special skills and experience within the healthcare industry. If you carefully follow state-specific  training requirements, you can be on track toward a profitable new career in a matter of weeks.
