Idaho CNA Training

For those who are tired of working at a job that doesn't challenge them intellectually and where they don't feel like they're making a different in the lives of others, CNA training may be the answer.

Certified nursing assistants are health care professionals who work closely with doctors and nurses to help patients get the treatment that they need. If you're ready to continue your education and want to make sure that you choose a career path that will provide you with financial security in the years to come, now is a great time to think about enrolling in Idaho CNA classes.

CNA classes, offered by community colleges and vocational schools, are designed to give students all of the knowledge and experience they need to be able to provide support to medical professionals in a health care setting. While doctors and nurses are responsible for examinations, diagnoses, and treatment planning, certified nursing assistants as responsible for recording patient histories, taking vital signs, providing patient education, and explaining procedures to patient families.

Becoming a CNA in Idaho

The Idaho Board of Nursing does not license CNAs. In Idaho, because these individuals are not licensed, CNAs are known as Unlicensed Assistive Personnel (UAPs), and typically work until the supervision of a licensed nurse.

To become registered as a UAP, an individual must either:

  • Complete an approved CNA training course and pass the required CNA exam.
  • Prove that he or she has completed at least one semester of an approved nursing program and submit transcripts showing that he or she has completed a basic nursing course.
  • Fill out and submit a reciprocity form to prove that the individual is a licensed CNA in another state with an "active" status.

If an individual has lost his or her CNA card and is in good standing, another one will be issued to him or her free of charge.
