CNA Training in WV – West Virginia

You can start a career in the healthcare industry by training to become a nursing assistant with certification.  It is also possible to use training as a nursing assistant as a stepping stone for further education in the healthcare industry down the line.  You will not be classified as a certified nursing assistant until you finish a training program that has been approved by the state, not to mention passing the certification test.  All training programs for nursing assistants in West Virginia must include at least 55 hours of clinical time.  This is more clinical time than required by many other states, ensuring that students are well prepared for employment as nursing assistants.

Clinical training for prospective nursing assistants will take place in Medicaid or Medicare certified facilities.  There are several excellent training programs within the state of West Virginia.  You can also consider online CNA training though you must make sure that the online training will be accepted by the state of West Virginia.  Obviously your clinical training cannot be completed online.  Some Medicaid and Medicare facilities offer nursing assistant training directly on site.  Many employers will cover the cost of training or reimburse individuals for their certified nursing assistant training.
