I had a CNA certification in Texas, but due to a move overseas, my certification is now out dated. We currently live in Kansas, and I want to pursue an LPN degree, however the school requires a CNA license for admission. My question is, in Kansas is it possible having already been a CNA to just be able to take the test?

Admin on August 13, 2009 at 09:26 PM
Since your Texas CNA certificate has expired, I believe that you must repeat the nurse aide training and pass the state exam in order to become certified in Kansas. With an active nursing assistant certificate from Texas you could have applied for reciprocity (reciprocity applicants must pass the Kansas CNA exam and are not required to repeat the training in order to obtain certification). You should contact the Kansas nurse aide registry to verify this information. Good luck!

I am a Michigan resident and I am taking my CNA course in Wichita, Kansas. Can a CNA license from Kansas be valid for use in Michigan and if not, can I take the Michigan CNA test so as to make my certification valid?

I am moving from Arkansas to Minnesota soon. Can you tell me what steps I need to take to transfer my CNA license over to Minnesota?

Is it possible to enroll in a CNA class without a high school diploma or GED?

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

After becoming a CNA how much more experience, training or school has to be done to become a registered nurse?

CNA Resources

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.
