    Are you referring to just the class or the lab too? If it is just the class then no you cannot work as a cna, you have to have so many hours of clinicals in order to do so. The state of Indiana requires a cna license to work as a cna. You can call the department of health and ask them what you need to do, you might just have to set up a day and time to take your state test. For me, after I had finished cna class, I was allowed to work in a facility for 90 days w/o my license, then I had to take my test. The test is 2 parts, written and hands on. Don't be intimidated by the woman, I was and failed my hands on the first time and had to wait a few months to retake that part of the test.

    Contact your state Board of Nursing. I know that in my state we're eligible for a CNA license after the first year of nursing school.
