    I passed my CNA exam on 1/4/2009. I had passed the written test on the first try back in December, but the evaluator started talking to me during the practicals and asked me to perform one of them differently, and then she failed me for it, so I did a retake (at another facility) and passed. My skills (on the retake) were;

    Handwashing (of course)
    Radial Pulse
    Ambulation w/a Gait Belt
    Range of Motion (knee and ankle)
    Making an Occupied Bed

    The bed was the one skill I probably practiced the most...took me 4 minutes from start to finish. Five days after passing, I landed an interview at a local nursing home and just started my new job last night! I'm on my way to a new career in healthcare!

    Thanks, and congrats to all the other CNAs out there. It is a critical service that we perform, so be proud to toot your own horn now and then!

    I challenged the NC state CNA test and passed.

    Somewhere on someone posted this website:
    I used the state guidelines to study, watched the videos and did lots of walk through practicing in my living room!

    Well......I passed my CNA exam on February 13th. I found out today. Took a quick peek at the nurse aide registry (typed in my last name and double checked with my ss#). I don't have the official letter just yet.

    I just knew I failed because I remember getting one incorrect and a few I couldn't recall. I get so nervous when I take written exams. Oral exams and presentations are no problem. Go figure. Many blessings to you all who will be sitting for their CNA and NCLEX exams.
