CNA written exam

  1. Hello Everyone,

    I am going to be taking my CNA written exam on Thursday in NJ.I already passed my skills exam... yay!!!

    I am extremely nervous about the written exam though, and I will just spend all night Wednesday taking practice exam and just reviewing... Please feel free if you can help me out... I am a nerve wreck right now....

    I wanted to know if it is difficult or easy? Any feedback or advice... I would really appreciate it....

    Thank You everyone!!!!!

    No, no, no, you're going about this all wrong! The skills is the part you needed to worry about. The written part is a cake walk! My class ended Nov 10th and my test was Jan 3rd. All that time in between I didn't even crack open my book, I ONLY watched skill videos. Written is common sense, I'm pretty sure anyone could pass even if they'd never taken the class, it's that easy

    Passed written and skills on my first try. Everyone in my group passed written no problem. 3 people were there to retake skills, and one person failed her skills that day. I'm in WI, but I'm sure you'll have no trouble! I wasn't the slightest bit worried about the written, skills though...drove myself crazy with worry!

    I agree with the others.. focus on the skills the written exam is honestly basic common sense.... I just recently took mine and passed both in NC.... You can go on youtube and look at the skills as well.

    I did take my skills and passed it, but I am afraid about the written exam still....
    One of my classmates passed it and the other one failed it, I am extremely nervous....

    I do agree with others that you should not be nervous. You should watch some videos related to your exam. I am sure you will get help with it.

    You didn't have to take the skills and written on the same day?

    being nervous is one of your biggest enemy when it comes to big exams like this, so shake thos combwebs and another thing never cram it never works;study months to weeks in advance if you can, but yes skills is the harest part and where most ppl goof up. To me MY skill validation was at my school and not at a test site so I got lucky, and the test I failed my first time, but re took it 2 months later and passed, dont realli know why I waited so long.
