Nurse Aide Training Schools in Georgia ( Page 5 )

The creation of Georgia Nurse Aide Registry as well as the design of a nurse aide training and competency program started in 1990 after the Federal Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA) passed as legislation. The primary mission of this federal law was to improve patient's quality of care. By setting training and testing standards for all CNA classes in Georgia, the law ensured that all those holding the title of certified nursing assistant met the minimum competencies for assisting nurses in providing care to residents.

State-approved nurse aide courses in Georgia comply with OBRA regulation by training students for a minimum of eighty-five (85) hours. Classroom and clinical instruction are conducted and supervised in nursing homes, hospitals, private schools, high schools and technical colleges throughout the state. To maintain employment eligibility, a certified nurse aide must renew her CNA certification biennially, and complete twelve (12) hours of in-service education each year. Every Medicare or Medicaid licensed nursing home and long-term care facility in Georgia provides in-service education hours to certified nurse assistants.

Tracy S. on August 05, 2009 at 06:59 PM
I am a CNA and I work in Tallahassee, Florida. I have been a CNA for about two years. I need to renew my CNA certification for Georgia, which has expired. Please help, I am trying to get a job in Georgia. What should I do?

A certified nursing assistant in Georgia must renew her certification every two years. To renew your certification you need to fill out and submit a renewal application. The CNA renewal application verifies that you provided a minimum of eight (8) hours of nurse aide related services for pay in the two years since your last renewal. I am not sure if the state of Georgia considers your work as a CNA in Florida acceptable for renewal of your certification. You need to call the Georgia nurse aide registry and explain your situation. The registry may be contacted at (678) 527-3010 or (800) 414-4358. If your work as a CNA in another state counts toward recertification requirements in Georgia, then you may request a CNA renewal application, complete and submit the forms, and become re-certified in Georgia. On the other hand, if the registry does not count your employment in Florida as valid for renewal of your CNA certification in Georgia, then your only option to re-certify is by retaking the Georgia nurse aide competency examination.


I am a CNA in Georgia and I have recently got married. I need to change my last name on my nursing assistant certification card. How do I go about getting this done?

Can a North Carolina CNA license be transferred to Georgia?

I worked as a CNA for years but my certification exipred and I was certified in Georgia but now I live in Virginia. What do I need to do to be able to work as a CNA in Virginia?

Can I work as a CNA in Georgia if I am a Critical Care Tech?

I worked at a nursing home after I completed the CNA class and got my CNA certificate in 1994 or 1995. Will this allow me to challenge the CNA test now?

CNA Training Requirements

There is a wide disparity between CNA training requirements among the states. The difference lies in the mandatory number of total training hours necessary to complete state-approved CNA classes.


While according to federal law each nursing assistant course should contain a minimum of seventy-five (75) instruction and clinical hours, individual states have the liberty to mandate extra training requirements for certified nursing assistants. The majority of states exceed the threshold federal minimum requirements for nurse aide training programs because they are considered insufficient to result in an optimal and safe level of care for clients.


A review of nationwide state requirements for nurse assistant courses has found that the following states have mandated highest number of CNA program hours: Maine with a minimum of 90 hours of theory, 20 hours of laboratory skills and 70 hours of clinical instruction for a total of 180 hours; California with one hundred and sixty (160) training hours; Delaware and Oregon each requiring one hundred and fifty (150) hours; followed by the state of Alaska with one hundred and forty (140) hours; Virginia, Arizona, and West Virginia have a minimum of one hundred and twenty (120) training hours for state-approved classes.
