Please help! brushing up on cna skills for re-certification

Nursing Students CNA/MA


I was a CNA since 1995 in Pennsylvania til 2007. I am re-taking my state certification in a month and am having trouble remembering the appropriate way to do most of the skills required on the skills part of the exam. Also it has been 17 years. Laws have changed I think? I have the skills list that is in the candidate handbook from Pearson Vue. Is that enough? Is bed making the same in every state? Where can I get a list of supplies needed for each skill? I've been watching youtube videos, but can't find any from PA. Please help if you can. Thanxxxx:uhoh3:

Hello, I am testing in 3weeks in CA and would like to know the exact same thing! I have the same book but they do not go into detail about the supplies needed to perform the skills etc... just list steps 1,2,3...

I am challenging the exam and haven't performed these skills in years as well. Youtube is not much help as everyone is doing something different. (not necessarily correct either!)

I too, would like help! Also, if anyone has tested at ROP in CA, any feedback would be appreciated as well.

Thank you

hi im from pa too and im going to have my state test this month so i found this website that has skills videos and is realy helpful so check this website i have another one that has all the steps for each skill but i dont remember right now i will be back with that .

Thank you 4 your comments. The website you left was helpful in more than just the skills videos. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one a little stressed about this, but if i remember correctly the test was much easier than I thought it would be. Good luck to everyone and I'll check back in if I find anymore info.

I'm in Florida and just took the CNA licensure exam two days ago. We use Prometric to test and they offer nice resources on their website. For example, if you check this out you should be able to get an idea of what to expect. The most important things seem to be the indirect care (where you communicate and respect your resident), privacy and safety. I hope the link helps.
