Packet and checklist for CNA exam?Register Today!
- by rose2012 Dec 29, '10Some folks in another thread (http://allnurses.com/cna-nursing-ass...na-499953.html) spoke of a skills packet that can be found containing a checklist of skills with everything the evaluator is looking for on a certain skill during a CNA exam. Can someone tell me, is it available anywhere online for free? Is there only one packet or is it different depending on where you are going to take the exam? I'm in northern California and will probably take it with Red Cross.
Please reply if you know anything about this packet and checklist and where to find it.
Thanks!Last edit by rose2012 on Dec 29, '10
- Dec 29, '10 by fuzzywuzzyMost of the skills are essentially the same, but I think there can be slight variations depending on your state. My packet was in the back of the textbook we used in class.
- Thanks. Can you tell me what textbook you used? That might give me a starting place.

I am on the East Coast though, so there might be those slight variations I was talking about.
- Re East Coast, right but if the checklist is in the book, I doubt the book was written specifically for East Coast students. Thanks for the title! Any thoughts from others welcome as well, and I think will be helpful to a lot of nursing students wishing to take a CNA challenge exam.
- Dec 29, '10 by VannVann2008I know that we receive one in class but it all depends of who gives the test. For North Carolina, its Pearson Vue. And on there website the have the pdf version of the book we received in class. Hope this helps.

- Thanks everyone, especially Tom, for posting the pdf files. I think the handbook contains what I need -- a list of 24 skills that includes the steps necessary to pass them. Very helpful! (The handbook does mention an actual Skills Check List you can download from their website, but I couldn't find it and I'm not sure what it would contain other than what is already in the handbook.) My only uncertainty now is whether those are the same skills/steps needed for the Red Cross exam, as this document appears to be for the Pearson Vue Centers. Maybe I should plan on taking the PV exam to be safe, although the Red Cross location would be closer to where I live.
