Nurse Aide Training Programs in Hawaii
Did you know that all state approved nurse aide training programs in Hawaii must have a minimum of one hundred hours (100) of instruction? At least thirty (30) hours must be spent in classroom activities while seventy (70) hours must be dedicated to clinical training. If you are interested in a nurse aide class, you need to choose one that is state approved and which follows all the mandatory training requirements. The nursing assistant class must clearly indicate that practical training will be conducted under the guidance of a Hawaii registered nurse with at least two years of experience.
In addition to having a registered nurse in charge of the hands-on clinical training, other health care professionals can also participate in teaching as long as they are licensed and qualified to supervise nurse aide students. The state of Hawaii does grant reciprocity of a nurse aide certification. This means that if you are a certified nurse aide from another state and are looking to obtain a nurse aide certificate in the state of Hawaii, you will not need to re-take state examination exams but only to complete and submit the application for certification by reciprocity.

Nursing assistant programs prepare individuals for challenging the nurse aide certification exam and for entry level positions in health care environments. Each state has the authority to decide how many hours of training a nursing assistant course must consist of, as long as the minimum federal requirement of seventy-five hours is met. Students interested in attending CNA classes have a wide array of choices when it comes to selecting a training facility.
Nursing assistant courses are conducted at nursing homes, vocational schools, private schools, and community colleges. Program length, admission requirements, and cost of training vary depending on the policies of every training facility. Several states have implemented legislation which requires licensed long-term care facilities to reimburse CNA employees for the costs associated with training. An individual who has paid for nursing assistant training classes and who becomes employed by a nursing home within a year of obtaining certification, is eligible for financial reimbursement. Compared to other training programs in the health care field, nursing assistant classes are relatively short and inexpensive. Obtaining state certification as a CNA is the main requirement for securing a nurse aide job at a nursing home, hospital, rehabilitation or skilled nursing facility.

How long do CNA classes take and what exactly do you have to do?

Nursing assistant training courses may take anywhere between three weeks to three months to complete, depending on the facility or school which offers the program. To enroll in nurse aide classes you must meet certain admission criteria pertaining to education, health, and background history. Those who are accepted into CNA classes must complete both the classroom and hands-on practice sessions to graduate. Finally, one must pass a final exam which tests a candidate's skills and abilities to practice correctly and safely. When you pass this final test you become a certified nurse aide.
