Complete CNA certification training in 3 months to become a licensed nursing assistant

Do you have compassion, empathy and the desire to help others? Do you want to work in the medical field but do not want to spend several years studying in order to enter a career position? Are you organized and able to prioritize? Do you have good communication skills and a strong work ethic? If this is you, then consider becoming a CNA. In the state of North Dakota, you will need to pass a physical and a criminal background check before enrolling in a state department of health approved program.

There are 56 approved CNA training programs currently available throughout North Dakota. The state requires that the student have no less than 75 course hours, with 16 hours of training being hands-on. Some courses can be completed in as little as 6 to 8 weeks. Most CNA classes are affordable compared to other programs of study. Once classes are completed you have to take and pass the CNA certification exam. Once the test is completed, your name will be added to the North Dakota Nurse Aide Registry and you can begin working. Classes are conducted at vocational schools, private schools, community colleges, nursing homes and also offered through the America Red Cross. Program length, admission requirements, and total cost of training will vary depending on the policies of the individual training facility. Students who are employed by a nursing home within one year of certification are eligible for tuition reimbursement.

Some of the classes you will take are Computer Literacy, First Aid and CPR, Basic Nurse Care and Anatomy and Physiology. Not only can you expect to learn the general duties of nursing but you will also gain valuable real world experience in these areas:

• dealing with emergency situations; such as administering CPR
• handling patients with mental and physical disorders, also patients with dementia
• helping patients and families of patients cope with terminal illness,
• write, read and record vital signs such as temperature, pulse and weight for patient records
• deliver meals and help those who need assistance feeding themselves
• change bedding in patients rooms and help patients with personal hygiene

Job prospects are promising, with the expectation that there will be twice as many elderly than there are now within the next ten years. With an aging population, the need for qualified nursing assistants will increase. The average salary is $23,000 to $25,000 a year depending on the city in which you work.
