CNA license expires soon.

  1. 0
    I've decided to stay working at UPS for a little longer, but now I want to work as a CNA. I did tried looking before, but had no luck. My license expires on 8/11/2013. I feel like I won't get hired since it's been so long. I'm gonna start applying everywhere.. I got a list of Long Term care facilities in my area. It is a big list. You think I still have time? Also, you think I should read the nursing assistant book a bit and watch some videos on how to perform each skills? I don't have much time ;\

    Apply! You don't have to worry about your license expiring yet. Just make sure you are completing the CEU's required by the dept of health.

    I'm very sure you'll get hired, and when you do get hired, if you feel a little lost because it's been so long, just ask for extra training time! I'm sure they'll oblige you. It took me only 3 weeks to find a job. You've got this!

    Thanks! I did so good at the nursing assistant class and it was very easy. I did performed each skills at the clinical and never had any issue. That's 'cause my partner decided to do almost everything >_<;; So I will need extra training lol. I will make sure to watch videos on Youtube to make sure.

    go to your state's health website and see what CU's a CNA should have and you will be able to renew with no problem, that is the important thing u should worry about. websites like rn.org can help you with that, just make sure it licensed for your state. to can always volunteer to get your skills back.

    Oh, I thought I had to retake the course if I never find a job as a CNA. I read that I will just have to retake the CNA state exam, but I don't want to go through all that again. I forgot a lot of things.. Especially the written test. That's good though that I don't have to retake the course. I also read I have to work for at least one 8 hour period during your 2-year Registry period, to renew it. I have a big list of nursing homes nearby which I will apply either on the internet or in person.

    The CU's can be used if you dont work. my wife had her cna for 2 years and got it renewed without working during that time cause she could not get a job. Honestly, states has no way to monitor that many CNA's whether they work on not.

    What is CU's? sorry for asking. I want to do that, like your wife! I don't want to retake the CNA state exam. The only reason I haven't applied much as a CNA is 'cause I wanted to stay at UPS for a little longer.

    I have the same issue. I live in cali and my cna license expires this June. I haven't worked as a cna. I've just been doing home-care. I need to renew my license to apply for the nursing program by March 15. I'm applying at nearby nursing homes. If I get hired, how long does the process usually take for me to start working? And once I submit my paper work that I have done the required hours as cna, how long does it take for my renewal to be updated? So the nursing department can verify that it has been renewed when they accept my application.

    I thought home care would do? Did you do most of the skills?
