CNA Training in MS – Mississippi

If you are considering a career as a CNA in Mississippi it is important to note that the average annual salary is about $19,000.  Of course, there are opportunities to earn a higher income.  If you want to enter into a career as a CNA, you will need to attend a training course (that has been accredited by the state) and pass the exam for certification of nursing assistants.  You can also apply for certification through reciprocity if you hold certification in another state.  Mississippi will determine whether or not they will recognize your certification from that state.

If your application for reciprocity is not approved, you will need to take the certification exam for the state of Mississippi before working as a CNA.  Do not be surprised if your application for reciprocity is not accepted.  If you are a first-time CNA student who has just completed training, you will need to sit for the certification test as well.  Some states allow individuals to repeat the test multiple times, but Mississippi does not.  If you do not pass both portions of the test, you will need to attend training again to ensure you are fully prepared for a career as a certified nursing assistant.
