CNA Training in SC – South Carolina

You can become eligible to work as a CNA in South Carolina in one of two ways.  If you have never worked as a nursing assistant before in any state, you will need to complete one of the many available training programs in South Carolina for prospective CNAs.  It is necessary to attend a state approved training program in order to be eligible to sit for the certification exam.  You can also apply for certification through reciprocity if you hold certification in another state.  The board of nursing will review your credentials from that state to determine if you are eligible to be granted CNA certification in South Carolina without repeating training or an exam.

Upon certification, you will be listed in the Nurse Aide Registry for the state of South Carolina.  It is necessary to renew your certification every three years by submitting the renewal application and any related fees.  Typically, your employer will pay these fees for you if you are working in a healthcare setting that is Medicaid or Medicare approved.  In order to be retain your certification, you will need to have worked as a paid CNA for at least eight hours in a two year period.  You will also have to complete mandatory continuing education credits each year.
