CNA Training in Oklahoma

Comprehensive guide to CNA training and certification in Oklahoma

Start a new career as a certified nursing assistant

Why should you choose Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) as a career? If you like to care for people and offer social and emotional support to them, this may be the profession for you. You are under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN) and report any areas of concern to the RN. You can work in a hospital, nursing home, retirement community or a facility for the disabled. You do perform duties that are considered undesirable and unpleasant by some people, but if you have empathy and patience you will be able to provide essential services and care to patients in need.


In Oklahoma the annual salary for a CNA ranges from $19,925 to $29,764. Individuals who are in the top of the profession can make around $35,377 per year. Certified Nursing Assistants often enjoy the benefits of paid vacation time, health insurance coverage and retirement plan benefits.

If you are a displaced homemaker, a single parent, someone who either has lost a job or can not find employment, becoming a CNA is an excellent option. In order to become a CNA in Oklahoma, you must be trained, certified and listed in the state Nurse Aide Registry. In order to do this, you have to finish a training program and pass a three hour exam.

To become a Certified Nursing Assistant, you must possess a high school diploma. A vocational school or community college are the simplest ways to become a CNA. The program takes between six weeks to twelve weeks to complete. You need 72 hours of Certified Nursing Assistant study and 16 hours of supervised clinical experience. The classroom coursework that is required includes anatomy, physiology, basic nursing skills, nutrition and infection control. There are some nursing homes that have programs that can last anywhere between one week to three months.

Students learn valuable skills, such as teaching patients to achieve the greatest level of mobility that they are capable of. CNA students are trained to communicate and interact with their patients, and they also learn about the patient’s rights. They are instructed on how to properly make a bed, perform housekeeping skills, and lift and turn a patient. The student ascertains how to set up medical equipment. Taking a pulse, monitoring blood pressure, and aiding patients with daily living skills like bathing and grooming are also skills that the aspiring nurse aide must learn.

Oklahoma offers many free programs for individuals who are interested in becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant. Furthermore, some welfare and unemployment agencies will aid you with the funding to become a CNA. If you are already employed as a CNA and received your certification within the previous year, the employer will often provide reimbursement for your training costs. Some institutions that provide nursing care will pay your tuition up-front if you agree to work for them for a specific amount of time afterwards. A CNA is an excellent option for someone interested in an entry-level medical career.
