I am a nursing student may I be a Certified Nurse Assistant?

Individuals who are enrolled in an RN or LPN program for at least four months and who have successfully completed a Fundamentals of Nursing course that included a clinical rotation may request to challenge the CNA.  Challenging means you don’t have to take the entire 175 hour course, but may test out. (Submit the following documentation: an official copy of your transcript and a signed letter on school letterhead from the nursing program director verifying a clinical rotation has been completed with the fundamentals of nursing) Once the information is received and verified, a response will be sent within seven (7) to ten (10) business days.
