I am currently a full time nursing student in my BSN program in NEW YORK. I'm doing my first clinical semester (Fundamentals, Health Assessment, Pharmacology, etc.,) I'm interested in becoming CNA while in school. Does anyone know if I can sit for CNA EXAM upon completion of my first clinical semester (mid December) or do I need to take CNA classes in addition of being in nursing school? Does anyone know NEW YORK STATE requirements to sit for CNA Exam? Any reply is appreciated!
