Minimum age for a CNA in ohio?

U.S.A. Ohio


Well I know for most states it is 16 - 17 but I was wondering what the age is for Ohio?

I'm in high school and think it would be extra smart to work in a field that I am going to purse later on :)

So if you know please let me know...

I thought to be an actual STNA you do have to be 18 but when I was an STNA we had HS girls 16-17 years old just working as caregivers in AL but they never came over to the LTC side.

Specializes in CVICU.

I worked as a STNA at age 17 in the Cleveland area. Just depends on the employer!

Specializes in AL Director.

Per Ohio guidelines you can become STNA at age 16 in Ohio. Must be 18 to assist in or maneuver a hoyer/ mechanical lift .
