- Aug 18, '12 by nguyency77Quote from MarkinAZThe written part is way too easy. MrsFrancis hit the nail on the head with her example, because that was pretty much my whole written test.I guess I will take the re-take the skills again. I passed the written with a 98%. It just seems like there is a big problem when so many fail the skills exam and yet they pass the written with ease.
There should be a core group of skills that every CNA should be tested on. It's not fair that some people get "Communication with a blind resident," ambulation, and whatever whereas others might get bedbath, pericare, and blood pressure. It's just either too easy or too difficult.
Honestly I've met several CNAs who can't take BP manually. Anyone else find that frightening?

Make sure to time each other so you can feel some pressure. Make sure there is an observer with the book out to make note of any errors in your preformance so you can correct your mistakes. If you can't have a skills party with other classmates then just keep practicing with your family. Practice sets of five random skills over and over till you notice a few that you are not good at. Then copy those skills down step by step till you can recite them. Once you have the words memorized start acting them out while you preform them. Some people learn better by writing or hearing instead of just doing so if one of those is your learning style this will help reinforce the material.i failed my skills test and i was depressed for days, I was mainly mad at my school because we only had class like two or three days then that first week she changed her mind and said we will have a fresh start on the next week.

Also if there is something you know makes you nervous do that too so you are nervous when you practice and have to think on your toes. Then when you take the test again find a relaxation technique that works for you.
When I took my state exams all the people in my class passed except for one, from the other school that had students there only about half of them passed. So if your school has a really low pass rate, make it known to the directors that there is something going wrong! Oh and good luck!
- Oct 24, '12 by Carley77It's a bunch of BS. Notice how they fail a lot of skills involving numbers we wrote with a PENCIL. I'm calling and appealing. This is absolutely prejudice. I'm sorry that the to Probably hates her life and can't handle people who have ambition.
- Oct 28, '12 by TaminaDon't appeal or contest the results. Yes it's possible that somehow they screwed up but it's far more likely you got the pulse wrong. Suck it up and try again. Immediately trying to blame others for what is probably your failure is not a good characteristic to have, so I suggest you work on that.
- Oct 31, '12 by rivershark2005I just failed my skills, too. Peri care to be specific. Passed pulse, ROM shoulder, hand washing, and indirect care, but I went wrong somewhere with peri care.
- Apr 7 by Petty2618It's all about the money in my opinion. I got a perfect score on the written, and failed the CNA clinicals. Also lost a job that I was interviewed for prior to the test (just increasing my stress level). I applied to retest and my application is lost. It has been 37 days today, but they took my money. The "observers" are employed on contract with Prometric so the more people that fail, the more money it makes for Prometric. I would like to see some statistics on this because it appears that more and more people are passing the written CNA but being failed on the clinicals. It really gets costly since combined with the training costs, plus application costs, background fees, etc. and lost employment. The real world health care is nothing like most of the CNA clinicals, especially the exercises which are usually done by therapists, not CNA's. Memorize the skills check list on the Prometric website and review the you tube videos over and over again. I hope I pass this next time around or I may have to move. It's a shame because I enjoy the CNA work and feel I do a good job. Sadly, a bad day can ruin your career.
- Apr 7 by PracI think its more important that u get real time hands on training in school like at ltc. I can tell u that when u get in the field, unless ur in hh, u don't have time to do it like school.
- Apr 8 by MommaTyI passed my clinical and written exam 1st try, but I know so many people who failed their clinical test at least once. Don't give up, re-try, you got this
