    Finally got to take my test yesterday and I passed. Was more nervous than I should have been though. I guess hearing some of the people that were there re-taking the skills portion got my nerves on edge or something. All was good though and i am now officially a CNA!! wootwoot!

    I passed my skills/written certification on March 1st.
    My skills were denture care, feeding, and dressing dependent resident with vision problems. What's funny is that those are the ones I forgot to practice in my spare time. I concentrated on blood pressure, bed bath, ect..
    Anyhoo, I'm happy and relieved, now I'm just waiting on the card to come in the mail and then look for a job. Congrats to everyone else!

    I guess I never posted mine - I passed back in January during our Christmas break (ADN student)...I had to clean a resident's nails and then put a shirt on a resident who was paralyzed on his right side. I think I missed one question on the written part (from the best I could tell; I watched them grade it from my seat).

    This was through the Red Cross here in MA (Cambridge/Kendall Sq). Fortunately they accepted a letter from the chair person at my school verifying that I had enough clinical hours so that I could take the test without having to attend the CNA course at Red Cross.

    I almost forgot - I also had to demonstrate handwashing skills and documenting when the assignments were complete (I actually screwed that up by documenting on the AM instead of PM part of the sheet)

    Also, congrats to the new grads
