How long does it take to become a CNA in CT?
Every CNA program in CT must be a minimum of 100 hours in length. Some programs are longer however at Northeast Medical Institute we have a 102-hour program. The 100 hours can be done on a full-time basis or spread out of several months. At Northeast Medical Institute we offer 2 week and 2-day programs and 4 week and 2-day evening programs. Attendance is critical to successfully completing a CNA program, so consider the class schedule before you enroll. There are many schedule options available.
How do I become a CNA in CT?
To become a CNA in CT you must successfully complete an approved 100 hour CNA program and pass both sections of the Certified Nurse Aide Certification Exam offered by Prometric. The certification exam includes a multiple-choice section and a practical section, a CNA graduate must pass both sections within 2 years from their program graduation date to become CT state-certified. Northeast Medical Institute is an in-facility Prometric testing center. We are allowed to test immediately after our class. Typically at Northeast Medical Institute, you will test in about 3-8 business days after your class graduates. The advantage of testing so soon at Northeast Medical Institute is that you will be CNA testing right where you learned so it makes the testing environment very relaxed.
Is the CNA Exam Hard?
The level of difficulty varies depending on the abilities of the test taker, but one must successfully pass an approved CNA program prior to testing for certification, so they should at that point have the knowledge to pass the exam. Test takers who fail are encouraged to try again, as there is no limit to the number of times one can attempt the test within two years from their graduation date.
Can I become a CNA online?
Online nursing programs are becoming more available. As this trend increases there may be more options to become a CNA. Because the role of a CNA is very hands-on with patient care, students are encouraged to find a hybrid program with adequate direct patient hours to gain the needed experience for working in the field.
