How do I get certified for CNA in Massachusetts?

Hello all..

I'm a senior nursing student in Massachusetts and would like to get a job as a CNA. I'm noticing that I have to get a license. Can someone please tell me the process? Will I need to take classes if I'm in my 4th year of school? Any info would be helpful.


Specializes in LTC, subacute CNA.

Since you are already a senior nursing student, you don't have to take a class. You go to the American Red Cross and take the test in order to get a license.They will require documentation from your school showing you've completed a certain number of clinical hours. You'll take both a written exam and a clinical portion. Go to your local Red Cross website to get information about the exam. Good luck!

Geeze..that was fast :) Thanks for the info. That's exactly what I needed to know.
