Vermont CNA Training


With all the chaos in the job market today, it can be hard for someone to imagine that there is an exciting career waiting for them, especially if their education is limited. It's important to realize that not all of the best jobs require an advanced degree or years of experience.

Anyone considering a change of careers and is interesting in making a difference in people's lives should consider taking Vermont CNA classes. These training courses are designed to prepare students for a career as a certified nursing assistant and can be the first step to achieving their dreams.

Vermont CNA classes are specialized training courses that will impart the knowledge and hands-on skills a person needs to pass the certification exam for certified nursing assistants. While doctors and nurses are responsible for making decisions and executing the most crucial aspects of patient care, they depend on nursing assistants to help them conduct these actions in the most efficient way possible. Nursing assistants might be required to take patient vital signs, record medical histories, and assist with preparing the patient for treatment.

Becoming a CNA

In Vermont, the equivalent to a CNA is a Licensed Nursing Assistant (LNA). In order to become an LNA, one must first complete a training program that is approved by the Vermont Board of Nursing. After completing this training program, the individual must apply to The Nurse Aide Competency Evaluation Service (NACES) within 2 years of completing the training in order to schedule a National Nursing Assistant Assessment Program (NNAAP) exam. The examination features both written/oral and hands-on components and must be passed within 2 years, or within 3 tries.

An LNA is also eligible to take the NNAAP in Vermont if he or she has an Authorization to Test Letter from the Vermont Board of Nursing and one of the following conditions applies:

  • The individual is either enrolled in or left a nursing program within the past 2 years and has completed a course on nursing fundamentals and 30 clinical hours.
  • The individual is in good standing on another state's CNA/LNA registry and completed an approved CNA/LNA program within the last 2 years (80+ hours, including 30 clinical hours), but did not complete the necessary 400 hours of LNA practice within that 2-year period.
  • The individual completed an approved CNA/LNA program within the last 2 years (80+ hours, including 30 clinical hours), but did not take the exam in that state.
  • The individual did not complete the necessary 400 hours of LNA practice within that 2-year period, but worked the required number of hours within the past 3 years.
