Find local CNA courses near you to earn your CNA certification in Delaware

In the State of Delaware, Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) are people who have completed State specific requirements in order to become certified in caring for the basic needs of the sick, elderly, and/or disabled. The process of becoming certified in Delaware involves the completion of 75+ hours of CNA course work with 100 hours of clinical experience, passing a Certified Nursing Assistant Exam, and submitting a comprehensive background check. This background check includes two fingerprint cards, photo identification, two passport size photos, immunization records, and a negative tuberculosis test taken within the last six months. It is required that the applicant also submit records of their high school diploma or a general education diploma (GED). Annual license renewals are required and the fee is approximately $50 dollars due by the licensee’s date of birth each year.

What is the Job Description for a CNA?

A Certified Nursing Assistant has many responsibilities. The highest priority is safety; both for the client being cared for and the assistant. Safety means that all aspects of health are in check including physical health, mental health, and spiritual health. Many organizations have ways to ensure that their residents can exercise their faith on a routine basis, and it is the responsibility of the CNA to respect the beliefs of his/her clients by ensuring they are allowed to practice their belief systems. Physical health of residents includes some basic care skills as well as some higher risk activities that may require specialized training such as dementia care for patients who require higher levels of sensitive care. Toileting, bathing, dressing, and feeding patients are very common responsibilities for a nursing assistant.

Mental and emotional health of clients is a part of the job that demands that the nursing assistant be aware to the needs of the patient. The facility residents are people who may be disabled or challenged in certain ways, but they still like to have conversation, to know the plan of action that the aide is taking, and to enjoy mental stimulation to keep their mind strong and healthy. The nurse aide position demands workers who are sensitive, social, and knowledgeable to perform tasks that keep patients enjoying their lives safely and with dignity. A potential aide should be someone who loves people and can be satisfied knowing that he/she is helping their community in a positive and caring manner.

Can I Transfer My CNA License to Delaware?

If you are a certified nursing assistant from another state and have just moved to Delaware you can apply to the Nursing Aide Registry in Delaware for what is called “reciprocity”. As long as you can provide verification that you completed a state approved CNA certification program, are currently certified in another state, and have worked as a CNA recently. You would not need to take the Delaware exam or training if you are granted reciprocity. All CNA licenses need to be renewed every two years and must have worked a minimum of 160 hours within those two years.
