    Hi there. No, the CNA exam is not difficult. I've already taken the CNA exam in June and I passed it. The written part is self-explanatory. If you pay attention to standardized precautions, PPE, and scene sineros in your class, you shall do fine. Additionally, the CNA exam is composed of a skills/ practical portion. Just make sure you practice those skills until you've got them done step, by step. And the most important advice is to never give up and always try your best when the examination time arrives. Practice the skills many times. The more you practice, the more you will become comfortable with the skills. Even if you make a mistake during the practicals, ALWAYS acknowledge to the proctor that you know you made a mistake. Futhermore and foremost, always ask questions, even if they seem stupid. Good luck with your class, the CNA exam, and in everything you do! :spin: let me know when you pass.

    I passed!! WOOHOO!! I was so nervous, but it really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I ended up passing at the top of my class with a 99% overall average (and a 98% on state exam, and 100% on skills), so much better than I thought I would do. I'm so proud of myself. My skills test was today, and I already applied at the hospital affiliated with the college I went to (and where we did our clinicals) so hopefully I get the job there.

    The skills that I pulled were "teeth brushing on conscious pt, showering, falls, measuring weight, and mechanical lift".
