S.T.N.A. Training and Jobs Can Be Found in the Buckeye State

As the demand for senior caregivers increases, more caregivers search for certified nursing assistant training programs near them on Caregiverlist’s  C.N.A. or C.H.H.A. School Directory. On average, certified nursing aides get paid anywhere from $10-16 per hour, which is above minimum wage in most states. C.N.A. stands for Certified Nursing Assistant, and C.H.H.A. stands for Certified Home Health Aide, as different states have various job openings for senior care workers. Some states, such as Ohio, calls nursing aides S.T.N.A.s. So what does the S.T.N.A. stands for?

 

S.T.N.A. stands for State Tested Nurse Aides. Actually C.N.A. and S.T.N.A. mean the same thing — the state tested nurse aide is a state-specific name for this caregiving career. The only difference is the amount of training hours that a nurse aide must complete to receive the certification.

 

“Some states require at least 75 hours of certified nursing aide training,  depending on state requirements,” according to Jen Underwood, Headmaster LLP of D&S Diversified Technologies LLP. “In Ohio, the Ohio Department of Health requires nurse aides to complete a 75 hour Ohio Health Department approved nurse aide training program prior to taking the state test. Nurse Aides in Ohio must pass the state test with an 80% without missing a bold/key element as defined in the Ohio Candidate handbook. We have all of our states that we offer nurse aide, med aide, and home health aide testing listed  on our web site at hdmaster.com.”

Resume Builder Pieces Together Caregiver Resumes: Caregiverlist Senior Care App Review

One of the crucial aspects of searching for a job in any field is polishing your resume to highlight your skills and past experience in your field. For senior caregivers, creating a resume helps show potential employers or seniors and their families who you might be working for specifically what your work history is and why you would be a good fit for their open position. The Pocket Mobile Resume app allows you to build your resume one section at a time on your smartphone. 

To create a new resume, the app provides categories to choose from including Personal info, Education, Experience, References, Skills and Other info. For caregivers, Experience and References should be included on a resume to show experience in the field and provide information for previous employers who can give you a good referral. Additionally, under personal information be sure to include your phone number and/or professional e-mail address so that you're easy to reach for an interview. 

The app itself provides specific fields to auto format each section, which limits the formatting options to a few in the but but is a lot easier than trying to format it yourself in a word processor. The app also doesn't require an answer for every field, so it's entirely customizable for what information you want to display. It allows you to edit and work on each section individually and add them to an existing resume, so you can work on it when you have a few minutes here and there as opposed to needing to block off a large chunk of time to write the whole thing at once. Users can also preview their resume and its formatting on a separate tab. 

The only downsides to this app is that the free version doesn't allow the user to export a resume off of their phone. For a one time $0.99 charge for the upgraded version of the app, users have options to export an unlimited number of resumes from the app into a PDF or HTML format. 

 

The basic version of the app is available for free for iPhone.

Senior caregivers, let us know your feedback on this app and keep us posted if you discover additional apps that assist with caregiving duties and help relieve caregiver stress. You may also refer-a-friend to a senior caregiving job and win prizes weekly and monthly on Caregiverlist.

C.N.A. Test Prep App Provides Practice Questions: Caregiverlist Senior Care App Review

Becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant (C.N.A) increases the number of job opportunities available to a senior caregiver. Certified Nursing Assistants help take care of bedridden patients, assist with dressing, bathing and feeding and take vital signs among other personal and nursing duties. Senior caregivers who wish to pursue becoming a C.N.A. can look into schools in their state that offer training programs. Before receiving certification, caregivers must past a C.N.A. qualifying exam. Caregiverlist offers a sample test to give caregivers an idea of what to expect on the exam. 

To review questions and study for the exam on the go, the MedPreps CNA Test Prep app offers free practice C.N.A. test questions for senior caregivers. The app features approximately 1,000 questions covering topics that could appear on the test, from client rights to activities of daily living to communication issues. Users are presented with a question with four multiple choice answers at the bottom. The app indicates an incorrect answer by lighting up red and a correct answer by highlighting the choice in green. No matter which answer is chosen, a box in the right corner labeled "Explain," brings up a screen that explains the correct answer in detail. 

The app enables caregivers to study for the test at any opportunity where they might have ten spare minutes. Try answering just five questions each day while enrolled in C.N.A. school while riding public transit or before bed. Look at which questions you originally missed as the test approaches and see if you can answer them correctly now. 

 

App Name: CNA Test Prep

Available for free for Apple and Android platforms. Limited questions are available in the free edition, unlock all questions in the paid version of the app. 

"Practice for your upcoming Certified Nursing Assistant Examination with our database of 1000+ CNA practice test questions!"
