What happens if you take the New York state CNA exam and fail it? Do you get to retake it one more time before having to repeat the class? I haven't taken a cna class yet, I am taking it in February, but i am just curious so i know what to expect just in case i fail. I hope not.

Either the licensing agency (BON or health department) or the plave you took classes should be able to answer your question.

I just finished my class and was told we would get 3 chances to pass

I am not sure about the state of NY but I know here in Texas you have 3 chances. You would of course pay to retake it. Most people do not have trouble with the written part, it is the skills that some have a hard time with. If you study and go over the skills and what goes along with each skill you should not have a hard time, the most IMPORTANT part is SAFETY & PRIVACY!! Here we get handwashing & communication and then get 3 random skills but we have to pass atleast 4 out of the 5. I believe to retake it here is $98 each time.

I just took my 3rd test last week and I passed I live in NYS and you get 3 try's
