Kansas CNA Training

For some, the idea of leaving a job to become a student again can be very unnerving. It is important to choose an industry in which there will be available positions after graduation. If an individual is looking to make the move to a career that has a bright future ahead, he or she should consider Kansas CNA classes. This training will prepare one to provide support services to medical professionals in a variety of health care settings.

CNAs are able to work with doctors and nurses to enhance the quality of care they are able to provide to their patients. Many hospitals, nursing homes, and mental health facilities will only hire nursing assistants that are certified, so it's important to start training as soon as possible.

Becoming a CNA in Kansas

In Kansas, one must complete a state-accepted training program of a minimum of 75 hours, including at least 16 hours of supervised practical training in a clinical setting. Individuals must be trained in the following fields prior to working as a nurse aide:

  • Communication/Interpersonal Skills
  • Infection Control
  • Safety/Emergency Procedures
  • Promoting Independence
  • Respecting Patients' Rights
  • Basic Nursing Skills
  • Measuring/Recording Vital Signs/Height and Weight
  • Caring for the Patients' Environment
  • Recognizing/Reporting Abnormal Changes
  • Caring for Dying Patients
  • Personal Care Skills (Bathing, Positioning, Toileting,
  • Responding to Patient Behavior
  • Awareness of the Aging Process
  • Using Patients' Families as a Source for Emotional Support
  • Caring for those with Cognitive Imparities, Dementia, and Alzheimer's
  • Basic Restorative Services (Use of Assist Devices, Range-of-Motion Exercises, etc.)
  • Confidentiality
  • Alternatives to Restraint Use

After Completing Training

Once an individual has completed a nurse aide training program, he or she must take a competency exam. Those who are registered as CNAs in another state can request reciprocity and become a nurse aide in KS.
