In short, I'm awfully nervous about this. People have told me that it's very easy... easier than the quizzes we had while in training... but howtosay, I knew my instructor as a person. I can't help but picture state evaluators as cold automatons with clipboards.

I'm convinced that I'll pass (I scored quite respectably in the class), but oy! Just keep me in your thoughts and keep your fingers crossed that I don't wake up with some random ghastly disease or succumb to jitters in the middle of a skills eval. Thanks!

Sara-

What was the skills test like? I am very nervous about that part. There are so many students in my class that we don't get time to really practice during our labs.

The skills test was allright - if you get in early, the evaluators tend to be softer, or so I've heard.

Personally, I would study the three skills you feel most shaky on, because I got all of mine :stone If it means anything, everybody but one person in my class passed the skills eval.

I took my CNA skill test about a month ago, and I passed. I thought for sure after i left the room, that i had done great, however, when I got home, I was reading the skills packet and realized that I never put the bed brakes on! THere were 2 skills that required moving a patient, and I forgot to do it. In retrospect, the bed didn't even have visible brakes, it was an old bed. Well I Freted for a couple weeks, when Lo and Behold I got in the mail, my CNA liscence. I am now a certified nurses assistant. The test wasn't too difficult. THen again, the volunteer patient was this funny middle age man who kept giving me hints, and he kept laughing. The nurse who was evaluating kept telling him to "knock it off"...... anyway you should do fine. Just remember the 3 C's at the end... Call light, Curtain, Clean hands
