CNA CLASSES IN TENNESSEE

The state of Tennessee requires prospective CNAs to undergo a state-approved nurse aide training program unless they qualify for an exemption (nursing students and military medical aides). 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 Tennessee varies depending on the location and the institution. There is no state requirement for a GED or high school diploma, though it is recommended. Some requirements that exist across all state-approved courses include:

  • Being 18 years or over

  • Passing a criminal background check.

  • Having a valid state-issued ID

  • Having a card for CPR for Healthcare Providers

  • Passing drug and TB screening

  • Being physically able to lift 40 pounds and stand for hours

  • Up to date immunizations

  • Having liability insurance
