Certified Nursing Assistant or Aide Training Varies in Each State of the U.S.A.

Certified Nursing Aides assist seniors with the hands-on care needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle while coping with age-related issues and diseases.  As America's population continues to live longer, we are also requiring more years of caregiving services.  Hospitals, nursing homes, hospices, assisted living communities and senior home care agencies all hire nursing aides who have formally passed their state's C.N.A. exam and maintain a certificate in good-standing.

Federal law created the training requirement and designation for the nursing aide position, but each state implements their own nursing aide exam and may add additional requirements on top of the training required by the federal law.

Nursing Assistant hours vary from a minimum of 75 hours of course work to a maximum of 180 hours (Maine requires 180 hours of training for C.N.A.'s).  The most common number of hours required are 75 and 120 hours.  Review the hours of C.N.A. training required in your state and request information on C.N.A. classes in your area.

Caregiverlist's C.N.A. School Directory provides information on the costs and admission requirements to become a C.N.A.  Employment opportunities are many for anyone with C.N.A. training and a caring and kind personality.  Anyone looking for a fulfilling career could test the waters in the caregiving industry by starting out as a professional caregiver and applying with one job application in their area on Caregiverlist (multiple companies use Caregiverlist's hiring platform and often hire as many as 5 new caregivers and aides weekly).

Review an Insider's Guide to Becoming a C.N.A. and take a practice C.N.A. exam as you explore this career opportunity.  Caregiver certification training consists of 10 hours of online training and can also provide an introduction to working as a professional caregiver.
