Can you become a CNA after level 1 of nursing school?

  1. 0 I am half way through my first level of nursing school and i want to work as a CNA over the summer. Since I am already in school to become a BSN can I take the CNA exam without any additional courses or just apply for CNA jobs and let the employer know I am a first level nursing student? Any help would be appreciated!!!

    I'm pretty sure you have to take a CNA class before you can take the exam.

    you need to ask your instructors of your current program. in some programs you are able to, in others you are not qualified to after 1 level. it depends on what that level consist of, and if your school is willing to send off the necessary documents for you to test for your certificate.

    If you are talking about a 'Certified' nursing assistant position...then no, you can't. A CNA has gone through a state board approved program/curriculum and had a set amount of supervised clinical practice in the CNA role. You might be able to get someone to hire you as a nursing assistant.
