Hi all, i am taking my CNA test and clinical tomorrow, and i was wondering if anyone can give me some input who has taken the test, on what i can expect on the clinical's. I am certain i am good to go but want to make sure i am not missing anything..

I did not find the CNA exam difficult, but that is here in Minnesota. Not sure if it is the same everywhere. The test out on skills consisted of performing 5 different set of skills. It was not hard, but I had to remember to always state that I was providing privacy for my patient. With some portions of the skills we just stated what we were doing and why. The best of luck to you with your test and clinicals

When I took my CNA years and years ago......one on the main things stressed was knocking on the imaginary door, introducing myself and explaining the procedure I was to do to the 'patient.' Privacy is also a big one to stay tuned to-keep 'patient' covered, close door/curtain. Just take your time. Don't rush or pressure yourself. I had 5 things to 'preform'. Brushing dentures, doing hand/nail care, taking vitals- a basic TPR, a transfer (make sure to lock the brakes on the bed and wheelchair-pivot to the proper side), and I can't remember what the last one was. Make sure you have siderails up onbed as needed and the bed is in the lowest position if you need to walk away from it. I wish you the best of luck-we need good CNA's!!!

I think the most important thing is to talk yourself through the entire procedure. If you say it, the tester knows what your doing and thinking.
