Washington CNA Training

It's important to realize that one of the things preventing most people from getting the job that they want is a lack of the right kind of education. Anyone who wants to have a rewarding career with a great chance of employment should consider taking Washington CNA classes.

CNA classes are specialized training courses for those that want to work as certified nursing assistants. Nurses and doctors depend on trained medical assistants to help them use their time efficiently to see as many patients as possible. Most certified nursing assistants find work in hospitals, nursing homes, mental health facilities, and public health care clinics.

Becoming a CNA in Washington

To become a CNA in Washington, an individual must complete a state-approved CNA training course consisting of at least 85 hours of training. Students must also complete 7 hours of HIV/AIDS training. Then, he or she must pass the Washington CNA competency exam. In Washington, Nursing Assistants are able to be registered and work in a nursing home or long-term care facility for 4 months before completing at training course and passing the CNA exam.

Renewing a CNA License

CNAs in Washington must renew their certificates each year before or on their birthdays. There are no additional training requirements. If a CNA allows his or her license to run out for 2 years or more, he or she must re-train and take the competency exam again, unless he or she still has a current OBRA registry out-of-state. If he or she is registered out of state, a reapplication form must be completed.
