    It says you have to perform at least 4 skills


    Can you give me examples of what that is?
    It isn't the written exam obviously

    I did my CNA test about a year ago. The skills I had to test on were: range of motion, cleaning dentures, hand washing, communication skills, and BPR. It is the hands on stuff you learned during clinicals. Good luck!

    They give you five. You must pass 4. Hand washing is one and a measurement is another ( bp, pulse, urine output etc) then there are three more such as oral care, occupied bed strip, transferring etc.

    You can't fail hand washing but if you fail one-off the others you still pass. There are certain partsbof each skill that if you skip a certain step considered crucial ( bed in lowest position, call bell in reach etc) you automatically fail that skill. IF you forget a step and remember before the skill is over they usually let you say so and when you would have done it.

    Hope I helped. Forgive the mess I'm on my tablet.

    I had Peri care, nail care, handwashing, vitals, and applying a stocking.

    Was easier than I thought. Good luck!

    I just took my CNA test last week and was tested on 5 skills. Everybody was tested on hand washing and communication. The other 3 skills are ones that you randomly pick from cards that are spread out on the table.

    The skills I picked were back rub, pulse, and range of motion (upper body). I was very nervous about the skills portion of the test, but it wasn't as bad as I thought. I passed everything.

    Basically, you perform hand washing (skill 1) and then you pick skills 2-4 from a card. Throughout all of the skills, you are being tested on how well you communicate with the patient (skill 5).

    Good luck!
