BSN grad - CNA in Illinois

  1. 0 I just migrated here in the US 2 weeks ago. I graduated with a BSN last March in the Philippines and wasn't able to take the NLE this year due to personal reasons. Now my questions are:

    Since Illinois doesn't accept foreign grad nurses to sit for NCLEX-RN without their local license, can I work as a CNA for the meantime? I am going back to the Philippines next year to take the NLE.

    What do I need to do aside from filling out the application form and sending the needed documents with it? Do they require further training?

    Is it going to be just a written exam or there's a skills exam too?

    Thanks in advance.
