New CNA Instructors

  1. 1 Ok, so Mom and I are both certified to teach CNAs and have started a company back in October. Tomorrow is the first time that we will have 'state' in to do the testing. Is there anything specific that you would like to have CNAs know/do when they come to your floor? We're open to suggestions! Thanks!

    Before starting EMS, my mother obtained her certification to teach CNAs and then began working for another company south of us. A year later, I obtained my certification. As the RN, I'm the program director (middle man between company and the state) which entails putting the program together so that it includes everything the state requires as well as lots of paper work. My mother is a LPN and is able to teach the classes since I work FT at a healthcare facility. It's been a rewarding journey! As I type, our 2nd class is in the building and we are completing their state testing so they can be licensed....so far...100% success rate!!!!!!! (I'm so proud of my mother...she truly is a great teacher!)
    If you have detailed questions, please feel free to email me, I'd love to help out if I could as well as obtain support and ideas from others.

    For Indiana, we have to attend an instructor course which lasted about a day and a half. Once we received our certificates, we had to make sure the site was set up with everything that the state may use to test the students with (i.e. hosp bed, gowns, gloves, stethoscopes, restraints, etc.) then let the state know they can come and review the site. They then send a letter stating we were able to have classes. It was amazing...a lot of our supplies were donated by people and other companies (dentures from a local denture company.) We've been up and running since October and have had 1 class each month since. With the r.v. industries laying off people, it's a good time to start using the grant money. Next month, I'm heading to the QMA instructor seminar to be certified there. I can't wait! Let me know if there's anyone that needs help setting up there own company. I can share a little of what I know.

    So many abbreviations. Is CNA certified nursing aide? It would be helpful for some of us if these things were spelt out.

    Hi Bella:

    Thank you!!! I am an LPN and in school to receive my RN. However, I am moving forward with my CNA Training Program in Georgia. I thank you for this post, as I didn't even think about how or where to get equipment. Did you send a letter out to vendors, suppliers, etc? How did you get set up to receive students who may be a part of state return 2 work program, reentry programs, etc.

    I live in Georgia.

    Blessings to you and your mom.
