Becoming a CNA in Rhode Island

To become a CNA in Rhode Island, an individual must:

  • Complete an approved CNA training program
  • Pass both the CNA certification examinations within one year of having completed the CNA training program. If the individual does not pass after 3 attempts, he or she will be required to retake the CNA training program before attempting the test again.

If an individual has already been hired as a nursing assistant, he or she must complete the CNA training program and pass the required examinations no later than 120 days after the beginning of his or her employment. If the applicant is currently enrolled in a nursing program and has passed a minimum of two clinical courses, upon application and payment of fees to test, he or she may work with a temporary permit for 120 days from the date on the temporary permit.
