    I challenged the CNA exam in Florida and passed on March 8th. I took the 1 week cram course at Medical Prep Pinellas for $279.00 in July of 2010 and finally got around to taking the exam.....my skills were position change, perineal care and measure/record urine output..and of course handwashing...the hard part was being the patient and watching the other tester skip steps that would cause them to fail...I finish my pre req's this fall and then it's onto the BSN...best thing I did for the skills test is to say everything while you do it...it helped me to remember all of the steps...

    I passed my MA CNA exam today!! :heartbeat
    My skills were denture care and positioning pt/resident on the right side. I guess I kind of lucked out.
    I got really nervous & fumbled a little but I corrected myself and kept it together!!
    Now I can't wait to start working. I am so proud of myself & congrats to all of you as well.

    I passed my exam this morning! Along with washing hands I had...

    Pulse
    ROM on one knee and ankle
    Ambulate with a gait belt
    Occupied Bed

    I felt terrible when my partner failed. She didn't put my foot in a basin for foot care, and forgot the lotion. Then when transferring me to a wheelchair she didn't lock the wheels and that was in bold Then didn't rinse the bedpan after measuring output. It was awkward to accept my passing slip while she didn't
    She was nervous.. I have to try my best not to be nervous. Once your nervous, you'll most likely forget things.

    I just took my exam this morning and I passed! I got super lucky and had some easy ones I had handwashing, measuring urinary output, foot washing, PPE, and ambulating with a gait belt. I was soooo nervous and I forgot some small things like forgetting to ask the residents name, leaving the call light, supporting the foot and she had me redo a skill. As soon as I told her I was done with my last skill the timer went off. I even had to redo a skill I was sooo sure I failed after my partner told me and when I got my results I screamed so loud

    I cant wait to start my first nursing home job! I loved clinicals

    This isn't about the CNA state exam, but I got an 87 on the finals for the nursing assistant program. 87 out of 100. I didn't study much because I knew it would be easy.. but she added some question that we never went over AT all.. I guess she tried to make it a little harder. I them wrong so yeah.. that's what happen when I don't study. As for the CNA, I will study a lot.. I am going to buy a CNA book to review it and answer questions to be prepared. I think I am ready... shouldn't be hard. I always though: If I do bad then what's the point going for the RN if I fail something easy? lol

    oh, and I think I got an A for the final grade in the nursing assistant class.
    I missed the clinical..

    That's easy... omg! lol I hope to get easy ones.. our teacher tested us.. similar to the state exam.. and I passed. I did handwashing, transferring to chair, pulse and respiration, nail care. I almost failed because I counted resp wrong since the partner I had knew I was checking it so she ... >_<
    Also, I did pretty bad for the nail care.. I screwed up. I passed though.
    I hope to get similar to these because they are easy. What I don't like are catheter care, blood pressure, range of motion (I will practice a lot for this)
    This thread is useful.. I am going to look at what people have been tested on so I can focus on it. I hope I get someone nice to watch me. Some people give you chances and make you do it again.

    I just got home from taking the WA State CNA test and passed. They gave us the written results before taking skills but then I had to wait over an hour after completing my skills test to know if I passed or not. The skills I performed were: hand washing (of course), count and record pulse, PROM on foot and ankle, mouth care and assist to ambulate. I completed them all in fifteen minuets and was so sure I forgot something like a whole skill not a step.
