i know its not much help since i live all the way in kansas but i just got done with my classes and clinicals and it was a breeze...our class and clinicals together were only 14 days long. i take my state test monday so ill let you know how i did. this is the first time the teacher made the class 14 days long. its usually 3 weeks. but if you feel like traveling then come on down and give it a try.

I took the cna state test and passed with flying colors. although, 2 of my classmates did not pass the skill. they both were tested on pulse but one couldnt find it because he was so nervous and the other got counted too fast and was 6 beats too much.

You can pass the test -- IF you pay attention in class, PRACTICE YOUR SKILLS, and study.

If you wanted to become a concert pianist, you would not simply listen in class and then attempt a recital without first practicing by actually playing the piano. The same goes for passing the CNA test. Practicing the hands-on skills are the key to passing the clinical portion.

Written:
1) Take the tests in the back of each chapter in your book.
2) Take practice tests whenever possible (online, the testing company itself, and at libraries).
3) Read each question carefully. Be sure you read EVERY word in the question & list of answers. NEVER change an answer, unless you are absolutely sure you know that you made a mistake on it.

Clinical:
1) RELAX!
2) STUDY & PRACTICE the skills as listed in the candidate bulletin available online. Study them step-by-step (including knocking and introducing yourself). Make it 2nd nature. Buddy up with a partner. I find 3 people in a study group is best. One person looks at the clinical skills list, one person plays the resident/patient and the other person is the CNA.

ALWAYS:
1) Maintain standard precautions/infection control.
2) Respect resident rights (offer choices, respect privacy).
3) Practice safety at all times.

If you make mistakes in these 3 key areas, you are much more likely to fail.

Best wishes to everyone & good luck!!!

How you dont know what are you supposed to do lol...am a CNA student in NY and yes you are supposed to do that, thats why its better to work as a CNA in hospitals, not private or Nursing homes . those old peoplezz with drive you crazy another option its working for pediatrics, check there's a lot of places better than your client to work.....so dont waste your time , learning how to bike start looking for a better oportunity or take the phlebotomy class then you can work at a lab. taking blood samples it pays 20 an hr...oh well grown grow.......always

Yes., I did this work for 8 years and for less than $11/h until I've got my back hearth. Now I cannot do that again. A lot of responsibilities for only 11$/h max.

I just wanna say that the written part is not easy as many of you might think. Thats why read the book and study hard.The guestions on the written tests are very treaky.

I found the written part to be much easier than the skills portion. I was so very nervous the first time that I failed the skills test. I retook it a month or so later and passed but I was still incredibly nervous, I was surprised that I passed. This was 5 years ago so I am no sure how things may have changed. I am trying now to get out of this line of work.

Maybe due to poor body mechanics. I don't blame you at all though for wanting to leave the nursing field.

What would your other occupation be if you don't me asking?

According to OBRA, there is a minimum 75-hour class requirement in addition to the state test to be certified. There are CMA's (Certified Medical Assistants) in my class (with 2 years of education and higher skills under their belts) who need to complete the 75-hour class before they can be certified. I understand that one can 'challenge' the test (take it without taking classes), but I'm not sure what is involved in meetin the OBRA requirement for the min. 75-hours...

I took the class at Baker College in Auburn Hills and it was a 10 week course and only 6 3 1/2 hour days of clinicals. But I heard at red cross it is only 2 weeks but 8 hours a day. I also read it was 2 weeks somewhere else too.

Make sure you study how to convert ounces and remember once you get the total number of ounces used for the shift if there is a question on the exam like there was on mine about what the total % was for the patient intake and output was take the total number of ounces and divide that number by 3. Also study your book. There are questions on the exam that ask about CNA's and stretchers and the how it should be done. STUDY STUDY STUDY your book. I took mine here in Illinois on 06/13/08 and just found out last friday that I passed. It is hard I won't sugar coat it. Alot of it is common sense too. Just read the each question carefully and if you start to run out time and have questions left then guess. Remember that your first thought out of your mind for your answer to the question is most likely the correct answer. Don't overthink the questions and put yourseof in the situation as a CNA and yu should be fine. Gets lots of rest before hand and eat breakfast if you can before the test. Stay away from caffine cause caffine will give you the shakes and make you more nervous. GOOD LUCK and I know you will pass this time. E-mail me when you are done @mkartsounes05@yahoo.com :)

You have to take a state exam once you are done with your class. I believe your clinicals are part of your course at least mine was. I am scheduled to take my state exam on August 4th. From what I have heard it is part knowledge/written and nursing skills I believe there are 5 skills you could be tested on from what I have heard. Hope this helps you. I know I am really nervous too more about the skills than knowledge.

I took my cna test june 21 and I passed the written and the skills. For me it was pretty easy. I had like 2 hours to take the written part of the test and i only needed an hour. The written part of the test was all basically common knowledge. Just read the questions carefully and my test had it where 2 answers could have been right but then i had to choose the best one. Then on the skills part of the test, I had 30 min. to do 5 skills. They were 1. hand washing, that is the 1 that everyone as to do no matter what. 2. Blood pressure, everyone has to do some sort of vital. 3. range of motion on the knee and ankle, be careful with this one and if you get it make sure to ask the pt. if they are in pain. 4. put on one elastic stocking, just put on a stocking, its not all that hard. and 5. position pt. on the side, make sure to use supports where need be.
Good luck and hope this helps... Good luck Make sure that you always wash your hands and give pt call light when done.
