CNA Training in VA – Virginia

Just like any other state, you will need to complete a state approved training program and examination if you want to be employed as a nursing assistant in the state of Virginia.  Virginia also offers an Advanced CNA training program that was created by the State Board of Nursing.  However, this program is not available to an individual until they have worked as a nursing assistant for 3 years or more.  Virginia is one of the few states to offer nursing assistants with the opportunity to advance their career directly in the CNA field.  In most states, individuals must pursue another career in the healthcare industry if they want to move forward in the medical or healthcare field.

Certified nursing assistants in Virginia can apply for an Advanced CNA program if they have an active certification and have been working for a minimum of 3 years with their nursing assistant certification.  Prospective students for the advanced training program will need to be recommended for the program by one of their nursing supervisors (past or present).  There are various facilities in Virginia offering the Advanced CNA training program.  Students who complete this program will also take a certification exam before they receive updated credentials.  Advanced CNAs will have more duties and responsibilities than those who received only the basic training.
