    You don't have to go for a training. Just go challenge it directly.

    Are you by chance an RN with a BSN degree from the Phils? If so, not just apply to become an LVN or LPN, different States call it differently, but the pay is much more than a CNA and then, one day, you can become a USRN, assuming you can meet whatever the State's requirements you're in.

    Most States will require a SSN to apply in any nursing program and for sure before starting to work in any facililty.

    hello! Im an RN in the phil just migrated here in California. I want to challenge the CNA exam.. Can someone explain this to me im a little bit confused. thank you----- An official, sealed transcript of training (students can substitute the transcript with a sealed letter on official school letterhead listing equivalent training in at least "fundamentals of nursing". The letter must include the completion date(s) of training).

    right now i'm working with my papers to take CNA test without further training, I think i'll have a hard time working on this coz im not an RN in the ph. I hope they will consider my job experience as a PCA to approve my papers.
