Do you need to take a CNA class?


I live in Floirda, and I was just wondering if you are required to take a CNA class before taking the exam?? And if so, how long do you have to take the exam?

I went to UMA, but never took the exam, that was over a year ago. Is it too late?:confused:

every state is different, so you need to confer with the governing body. The agency that awards the CNA certificate will know. Could be your Health Dept. If you do not know who it is, contact HR in a hospital and ask them, or google for CNA + your state. I bet you need the class so they can know you had the appropriate education.
