CNA without GEDRegister Today!
- by cna23 Feb 6, '11Are there any certified cna's working without their GED or highschool diploma?? Is it even possible since you can be certified without your GED??
- Feb 6, '11 by Nurse2bKimberlyI think a lot of CNA programs just want you to read on an 8th grade level. And then once you become a CNA, jobs just mainly require you to be listed on your state nurse aide registry.
I've met a couple of CNA's without GED's or HS diplomas.

If you fail a section of the test it will need to be repeated. If that happens before the change and you don't repeate the section(s) failed you'll have to retake the entire new test. I'm not trying to lecture you.. just trying to impress upon you the importance of getting this exam out of the way.

- Feb 7, '11 by TheCommuterI live in Texas, where a person can become a CNA as long as they are at least 15 years old and have completed the 9th grade. In other words, a high school diploma or GED is not a requirement for becoming a CNA in the state where I live.

It's good that you're helping your friend. Maybe the changes ahead in 2012 will give her incentive to go after her GED before it becomes more difficult.
I hope she can get what she needs to move forward.
