Specializes in home health, neuro, palliative care.

Check with your state board of nursing. They should have info online.


In WV CNA training/certification is controlled by the WVDHHR. The website is

http://www.wvdhhr.org/ohflac/NurseAide. Unless things have changed, and I do not believe they have, you must have clinical training in a nursing home. Hope this information helps.

I was a CNA before going to nursing school, and you do have to go through a state approved training program. My mother also taught CNA classes. You have a big list of things that you have to be checked off on in the actual clinical setting before you can take the test.
