How do you 'get away' with not having to take the state exams? I thought that passing the written and skills CNA testing for your state was the only way for your name and info to appear on your state's registry of healthcare workers and it's the only way, other than the sheet they give you at after you pass the tests, to prove you are really certified?

Some states allow you to apply for CNA certification if you passed CNA course or nursing fundamentals course.
