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

CNAs are in high demand in Ohio because there are fewer candidates available for the required number of job openings. The job market is extremely tough overall, but this is one sector where the job market is actually growing during this tough economic time. CNAs are mostly likely to find jobs in nursing homes or as home health care professionals. They usually find work in long-term health care situations. Certified Nursing Assistants usually make around $28,000 per year, which is a pretty sizable sum considering the amount of training that is required to get a position in that field. This salary amount is above the national salary average.

The Ohio Department of Health oversees all of the training and education programs for CNA certification. The training follows guidelines set forth by the state and guidelines that are established on a national level. The national requirements for CNA training are that each student spend a total of 75 hours in training before they challenge the certification exam. At least 16 of these hours need to be completed in a classroom setting and another 16 need to be completed in a clinical setting for more hands on training.

After you complete the 75 hours of training you will have to take a state test to determine if the information that has been learned in the education course has been mastered. The test is two-parts. The first part can be taken as a written exam or taken orally if you are more comfortable taking the test in that manner. The second part tests your skills by making you demonstrate 5 hands-on clinical procedures in front of the test givers. The test costs $96 to take. You must also renew your license every two years with the state. Those who have become CNAs must work at least 8 hours in the field every two years to be eligible for license renewal.

Becoming a CNA can be a great step into employment in the health care field. It is a great way to start working and making money without making the huge commitment of time and resources that becoming a registered nurse can require. You can find out if you enjoy working in the medical field without using 4 years of your life getting training for a career that you might not be suited for.
