A combination of better health care and jobs that allow people to avoid long days of manual labor means that people are living longer and bringing a whole host of new challenges to the medical industry.

Although the demand for hospital and other health care services is growing rapidly, the amount of patients that can be treated by the available doctors and nurses is limited. To meet the changing demand, medical facilities are actively looking for certified nursing assistants to support health care staff. In order to be eligible for this job, a person must have completed approved Indiana CNA classes.

Anyone thinking about Indiana CNA classes should know that they are designed to give students both the hands on training and the medical knowledge that they'll need to provide assistance to doctors and nurses. As a CNA, they'll be responsible for taking patient vital signs, recording medical histories, explaining treatment plans, and educating families about preventative measures. This leaves more time for doctors and nurses to use their expertise to treat a greater number of patients.

Becoming a CNA in Indiana

To become a CNA in Indiana, an individual must complete state-approved CNA training program. State-approved CNA training programs consist of at least 30 hours of classroom instruction and 75 hours of clinical training. After completing the training program, an individual must pass both the written and skills portions of the CNA competency exam in order to begin working as a CNA.

Licensure by Reciprocity

If an individual is already registered as a CNA in another state and is considered to be in good standing on that state's CNA registry, he or she may qualify for reciprocity. These applicants can forgo the training requirement and become CNAs by submitting a CNA Final Exam Application and passing the CNA competency exam.

Renewing a CNA License

Indiana CNA certificates expire every two years. In order for an individual to renew his or her CNA certificate, he or she must provide proof that they have worked at least 8 hours in a licensed health care facility, home health agency, or hospice.
