Louisiana CNA Training


As soon as an individual graduates from high school, there is pressure on him or her to attend college to prepare for a career. However, there are educational opportunities other than a traditional college that can lead to a successful and satisfying career. For someone who has always wanted a job where he or she can feel like they're really making a difference in the world, Louisiana CNA classes may be the answer.

For someone who's never heard of Louisiana CNA classes before, or the way that they can help a person to achieve a satisfying career as a certified nursing assistant, a lot can be gained by researching the responsibilities and job outlook for this important industry. CNAs are responsible for providing support and various patient services in a health care setting, such as a hospital, nursing home, mental health facility, or public health clinic.

Becoming a CNA in Louisiana

In order to become a CNA in Louisiana, one must complete an approved training program consisting of a minimum of 80 hours, including 40 clinical hours and 40 classroom hours. Of the training, at least 16 hours must be spent on the following topics:

  • Bed Making
  • Taking Vital Signs
  • Measuring Height and Weight
  • Caring for the Patient's Environment
  • Measuring Intake and Output
  • Assisting with Nutrition
  • Ambulation and Transferring
  • Using Body Mechanics
  • Infection Control and Safety
  • Understanding protocols for proficiency in CPR
  • Caring for Dying Patients
  • Recognizing Abnormalities
  • Caring for those with Alzheimer's and Dementia
  • Personal Care Skills
  • Mental Health and Social Service
  • Basic Restorative Services
  • Patient/Resident Rights
  • Communication/Interpersonal Skills
  • Safety/Emergency Procedures
  • Promoting Independence
  • Heimlich Maneuver

After Completing the Training

Following completion of the CNA training course, one must pass the state's competency exam. He or she is also subject to a background check.

Renewing a CNA License

In Louisiana, nurse aides must be paid for at least 8 hours of nursing or nurse related duties within every 24 month period or else they lose their certification. Even if a CNA works the necessary hours, the individual will still lose his or her certification if these hours are not reported to the CNA registry. If a CNA loses his or her certification, he or she must recomplete a nurse aide training program.

Licensure by Reciprocity

Louisiana also has a reciprocity process, which allows licensed CNA from other states to become registered to work as a CNA in Louisiana. An individual wishing to do so must fill out and submit a reciprocity form to the Louisiana CNA registry.
