CHHA looking to become a CNA

  1. I have a few questions I am currently a CHHA and want to get my CNA as well. My question is do I have to take the training course to become a CNA or am I able to just take the test since I have already completed all needed classroom hours? also where can I take the CNA test? cost? any advice on how to prepare for the CNA exam?

    What state do you live in?

    Go to the department of public health's page for your state you live in and find out what the requirements are. As far as I know, the requirements here in CA are less hours for HHA than CNA, and so here you can't just test out. A lot of schools will do both certs at the same time if you pay a little bit more. I wish I would have done that, having more certs is always a good thing
