CNA Training in CA – California

There are some criteria you must meet if you wish to train for a job as a certified nursing assistant  in California.  You can become a CNA by enrolling in a nursing assistant program approved by the state and by passing the nursing assistant certification exam.  Sometimes individuals with other healthcare related training are granted permission by the Department of Health (in California) to take the certification exam without completing a CNA course.  You will need to agree to a criminal background check being performed to check your records.  Fingerprints are taken for the purpose of conducting an extensive background check.  Many crimes will prevent you from being permitted to train as a CNA in California.

It is necessary to have a thorough physical before entering a CNA training program.  You might be denied admission to the program if you are in poor health.  This will depend on whether or not your health poses a risk to you or to patients with whom you would be working.  Even after you have received your nursing assistant certification, it will be important to maintain a clean criminal record and good health.  You will lose your license if you are ever found guilt of misusing the property of patients, abusing or neglecting patients.
