Can you have a fellow student assist you at the CNA state exam?

  1. My class is going together as a group and was wondering if I'd be able to demonstrate the skills on a classmate or if they'd be able to assist me on certain skills.

    We were able to test with each other. But then again we took it at the facility where we were trained. Good luck!

    My class went as a group and we were each other's patients. We were NOT allowed to help/assist in any way. We were given scenarios and we acted upon them. Also, when asking your "patient" if they are comfortable, make sure your classmates say "yes" unless they are actually in a lot of pain. In the class before ours, a girl acting as the patient said she was uncomfortable on the bed pan so the student playing the nurse failed!
