Wyoming CNA Training

In today's economy, even some of those who have advanced degrees and years of experience are struggling to find jobs that will allow them to support their families and pay their bills. The outlook for those with limited education is even bleaker.

However, by training to work as a CNA, individuals can set themselves up for a very rewarding job in a growing field. Anyone who has always wondered what it would be like to work around doctors, nurses, and patients that depend on them for quality care might want to think about taking Wyoming CNA classes.

In Wyoming, as in the rest of the country, a booming elderly population has begun to put stress on the health care system. Doctors and nurses are finding that they are overwhelmed with a greater number of patients requiring long term care. As a result, these medical professionals must rely on a support staff of CNAs to make sure that everyone is still getting a high level of care.

Becoming a CNA in Wyoming

In the state of Wyoming, a certified nursing assistant is also referred to as a nurse aide. A person is eligible to complete a CNA training course if he or she is at least 16 years of age. Like many states, and individual is required to complete an approved CNA course that is a combination of classroom and clinical training, as well as to become certified and registered by taking an examination.

The minimum required number of training hours for a CNA course in Wyoming is 75. As mentioned, these must be both classroom and clinical hours. In order to begin clinical training, one must first become CPR certified and pass a criminal background check and drug test.

After CNA Training

After completing the required training, a certification examination must be taken and passed through the Wyoming State Board of Nursing. There is a two year window during which an individual can take this exam after completing a training course.
