CNA CLASSES IN SOUTH DAKOTA

The state of South Dakota requires prospective CNAs to undergo a state-approved nurse aide training program, unless they qualify for exemption by passing other nursing courses. Completion of the training will allow the candidate to sit the exam and begin their career as a CNA.

Eligibility to take CNA classes and work in South Dakota varies depending on the location and the institution. There is no state requirement for a GED or high school diploma, but most institutions do require one for entry. Some requirements that exist across all state-approved courses include:

  • Passing the school’s entrance examination

  • Possessing a valid government-issued ID.

  • Providing proof of good physical and mental health from a physician.

  • Having a completely clean criminal record

  • Having a valid card for CPR for Healthcare

  • Passing a physical exam and providing a negative TB test within 1 year of the application.

  • Being 18 years or over

  • Providing proof of immunizations.
