CNA Training in Vermont

Comprehensive guide to CNA training and certification in Vermont

Certified Nursing Assistant jobs are currently in demand all over the country and especially in Vermont. A Vermont CNA works directly with patients under the supervision and direction of a registered nurse or doctor to provide both medical treatments as well as personal care for patients. Some duties of a CNA include taking blood pressure for a patient, checking their vital signs, bathing and dressing them and attending to the patients needs. A Vermont CNA can get certified to work in a long-term care facility, hospital, assisted living center or nursing home. Vermont offers some of the best schooling, training and opportunities for a CNA.


In every state including Vermont there is a certain number of training hours a CNA student must meet before being eligible for certification. It is a requirement in every state that students have a minimum of 75 hours of instruction and clinical hours, but each state can decide if they want to require more than 75 hours of training. Vermont allows the minimum federal requirement of 75 credit hours, but many individual training programs in Vermont include around 100 hours of training. The curriculum guidelines are set by the Vermont State Board of Nursing. Not only will the Vermont CNA courses teach you about caring for a patient they will also give you tips on how to communicate with patients as well as other nurses and doctors. They will teach you how to deal with emergencies and show you all of the skills needed to perform required tasks and how to keep your patients’ information private. All of the classroom and clinical training will prepare you for the CNA certification examination which you must pass to become licensed.

Vermont requires men and women to renew their nurse aide certification every 2 years. They automatically send you the papers you need to renew so that you can easily fill them out and mail them back. In order to renew your certification every 2 years you are required to work at least 400 hours or more as a CNA in the state of Vermont in the previous 2 year period. If you wait too long to submit your renewal papers your certification will expire and you will have to re-take the certification exam.

People decide to become a CNA in Vermont for a variety of different reasons. One reason is to help care for people who are in need. Another reason is to try out a career in nursing before making the decision to become a registered nurse. The starting salary for a CNA in Vermont is competitive given the amount of education and training required. The general starting salary in Vermont for a certified nursing assistant is $32,000 a year. Salary, benefits and availability of jobs are three great reasons to become a certified nursing assistant in Vermont.
