CNA Requirements to Take The State Exam
Getting your CNA license in the state of California requires that you be 16 years of age and have 150 hours of training before you can take your state exam. We provide our students with 178 hours of training to make sure that you pass your state exam and get all the training needed to get out into your new career. We provide you with not only theory and clinical but a skills review day before you take your state exam. Our CNA program consists of 51 hours of theory, 20 hours of lab and 103 hours of clinical training at a nursing facility under that watch of your instructor. We provide you with 4 hours of CPR that gets you your CPR certification and you get your CPR card the same day. We also provide live scan and this is all included in your tuition. Live scan is for finger printing so if you have a criminal record you will have to get your cases expunged and cleared with state before being able to work as a CNA.
Taking Your CNA State Exam
The state exam consists of 2 parts, a written test and a skills test. You MUST pass both parts of the exam to be able to get your license from the state of California. We know that this is a VERY stressful time for our students and we help as much as possible to get over the anxiety. That is why we offer a State Exam Review day before the state exam to practice all your skills and to ask any additional questions you may have. We are very proud of our passing rate which is at 94%, the state average is 86%, and we keep this standard year after year.
The state of California gives you 3 chances to pass the state exam without having to take a CNA class again but you must pay for the part that you did not pass. Right now Regional Testing Center is charging $100 for the state exam. If you happen to fail you only have to take the part of the test that you failed. For example, if you fail your skills but pass your written you will only have to pay $65 to take that part of the test again.On the other hand if you fail your written and pass skills you will only have to pay $35 to take that part of the test.
