NY CNA STATE BOARD

  1. 0 I just took my CNA state board test today and I had 3 skills. I had Ambulation, Record and Measure Weight which I remembered everything for both. Then I had Perineal Care and I forgot to turn the dummy on it's side and wash the buttocks. I am freaking out. Does anyone know if that will make me fail the clinical part of the test. Please help me.

    Try not to worry...Keep checking the prometric site with your first and last name...that is what I did...I don't think that it will notify your of a fail score...however it will let you know if whether you have passed...keep me posted..I was nervous about my skills too ( I had the same that you had)but as I explained before...they do allow you a few errors...(not major ones though)...

    I had the same exact skills today, I'm freaking out about my test and seeing if I can get the results earlier than 5 days because I don't want to be banging my head against the wall for the whole week

    Hopefully the results will come up before then but we'll see The test giver asked me at the end of Ambulation if I'd forgotten anything and I couldn't remember anything but the one thing I did NOT do is put the patients hands on my shoulders instead of just grabbing their transfer belt while lifting them out of the chair and counting to three. I realized this AFTER leaving the test room. I couldn't think of anything else that I had done wrong. SO, don't forget to do that people. I think I was marked wrong because of that.

    Other than that, stay CALM. I have problems with anxiety and it came out during the test. Whatever you do too calm yourself - praying, meditation, yoga, working out and whatever makes your nerves CALM .... do IT. I became emotional once she was asking me about a 3/4 of a pound on the weight measurement skill. My RN was pretty particular and harsh. There are NO questions that you can ask during the test... After the test I was talking with my volunteer and she mentioned that I was walking beside her RATHER than behind her. I WAS walking behind her BUT I guess make sure you are behind her for a reason, I was behind her but by only a few steps... so be behind them by more than three steps.

    Besides that I have received great recommendations from this website for videos and I can't believe I forgot the shoulder incident! I forgot that in all of the practice sessions.

    ALSO,

    If they don't say anything to you when you say "handwashing required" which is beyond the first handwashing step GO AHEAD and do the full handwashing step. They will get annoyed of you doing it every time and tell you to go ahead and proceed without doing the 4 minute process because of time.... This lady was to the T!

    Just be very thorough and take your time even though they may be rushing you.

    The number that you are given for skills will depend on when you finish the written test, this MAY NOT be for every test giver. I didn't know this but I was one of the first one's going because I finished the written test early. So if you need to go over your test a few times, wait till someone else turns it in.

    I hope this helps with everyone else's NYC test experience.

    Good Luck to ALL.

    Thank you I passed It took two weeks to find out though every time I entered my name in it didn't come up so when I got my certificate they spaced my name differently that's why it wasn't coming up lol. I can laugh about it now

    I passed also! Just found my name on the registry. If you think the RN marks something wrong while you're performing your clinical skills you'll most likely be OK because you're allowed a few minor mistakes.
