Susan in Kinston, North Carolina said: You cant be a CNA In NC without GED. Its too late for your HS Diploma I presume, but GED classes are free. You used to be able to "grandfather" in but those days are over. So just go back and get your GED. Sometimes all you have to do is take a test and not even classes. You may be able to be a PCA meanwhile, but neither CNA nor PCA pays very well. I know I've been one for a long time ( I have an assocoaites degree) and now I am going back for my LPN. Best of luck in your endeavors-

This is NOT TURE!! I have CNA License and I DO NOT have a high school diplomam and I live in NC.

i took my cna test and got my licsense with out my high school diploma or ged! its easier to get into the classes if you work for a nursing home or hospital and they will pay for you to go! in missouri you have to have hands on with a rn so if you take the class and dont work in a nursing home or hospital it will be really hard to get your classes requirement fulfilled unless you can find somewhere to volenter and the rn will sign off your sheets for you!

Just go get a GED. I know of people who got their CNA while in high school/through high school. Even though they were still in high school they had to show they were on track to graduate on time.

A CNA certification doesn't require a diploma, but advancement in the medical field past the CNA certification generally does, so you'll want to have the GED so you can be accepted into medical colleges later on. The GED also shows you are committed to learning and will look better on your resume than nothing when you try to find CNA work.

The test is $101.00 if you pay online. A paper application costs an additional $20.00 if you pay by mail. There lots of CNA training options and in your area I believe there are a couple of fast track ones as well. There is one or two in Charlotte, one in Gastonia, and one at Indian Trail.

Our training (CNA QUICK!) is in Hickory, NC and includes 44 hours of hands on skills training for your State skills evaluation. You have to study some on your own for the written portion of the test. Total price is $349.00 which includes everything but the cost of the State test ($101.00). We offer a payment plan!

Hopes that helps and Good Luck!!!

There are a number of testing centers throughout the State. A STATE Approved CNA course is not required; however, some training is beneficial in passing the exam and learning what your job requires. There are a couple of options near you in Charlotte for CNA programs I believe. Our program is in Hickory, NC at www.cnaquick.com

Hi everyone, My girlfriend wanted to know if you can take the CNA exam in new york state without doing the coursework yet. She wanted to get the course outline and study it using books from the library and medical books she already has. Is this possible. Please let me know. Your comments are appreciated.
