Taking the CNA Certification Exam

You have completed your CNA coursework from an accredited program – now it is time to take the certification test! After completing this exam, you will listed on your state’s nurse aide registry and eligible for employment. Testing requirements may vary between states, so the first thing you will need to do is check with your state board of nursing to understand its examination requirements. The most widely accepted test is the NNAAP, which stands for the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program. Twenty-four states use the NNAAP exam to confirm the competency of prospective CNA’s.

The NNAAP exam consists of two parts: a written/oral section and a skills evaluation. Typically students must answer 70 multiple choice questions, and correctly demonstrate five randomly selected, hands-on skills. Students are usually allowed to take the exam up to three times in two years if they fail the first.

To learn more about which ones, see the National Council of State Boards of Nursing for details. If your state is not listed, check the nurse aide registries for a complete state-by-state listing.
