CNA Classes in Hawaii

Hawaii CNA Training

When faced with the prospect of going to college or entering the workforce, it can be difficult to decide which decision will be right for the future. College is a large investment of time and money, and there's no guarantee that when an individual graduates, he or she will have acquired the type of skills that are currently desired in the market place. Unfortunately, if a person enters the workforce without a focused type of education, it's unlikely that they'll find a job that will provide them with financial security in the long term. For some, Hawaii CNA classes may provide them with secure employment at a quicker pace than studying for four years at a traditional college.

Becoming a CNA in Hawaii

In order to become a CNA in Hawaii, an individual must complete a CNA training course. In a health care setting, doctors and nurses are responsible for examination, diagnosis, and deciding which treatment plans are right for each patient. During this process, the nursing assistant is focuses on gathering patient health history details, taking vital signs, explaining procedures to the patient and their family, and making sure that people are educated about preventative practices. In Hawaii, CNAs work in both Medicare and Medicaid certified facilities and state-licensed or state-certified facilities. The requirements for certification in these different types of facilities are the same. In both cases, applicants must first complete a training course approved by the Director of the Department of Human Services. After training, one is eligible to take the nurse aide examination, which consists of either a written or oral section in addition to a skill demonstration component. Applicants must achieve at least a 70% in order to pass the examination and become certified.

Licensure by Reciprocity

It is possible for a CNA from another state to become certified in Hawaii by requesting reciprocity. The requirement to do so is having previously completed a comparable training course and examination in another state.

Renewing a CNA License

A CNA must renew his or her certification every 2 years. In order to do so, he or she must have performed nursing work for pay for at least one full day in the past two years in the type of facility the individual is licensed in. An additional requirement for those who are licensed in a Medicare or Medicaid care facility is the need to have an annual performance review and complete in-service training based on the review. In a state-certified or state-licensed facility, a CNA must pass a competency exam in order to become recertified. Additional Resources:
