    I am not sure, but I'd suggest that you contact Arkansas DHS...

    ARKANSAS DHS/DMS Mail Slot 405
    P.O. Box 8059
    Little Rock, AR 72203-8059
    PH: (501) 682-6172
    FAX: (501) 682-8551

    You can also call around to local tech schools that offer cna courses. They would know the age requirement.

    Good Luck,

    i don't really know...but i'm pretty sure it would be 18..but you could always ask the hospital you are trying to apply...
