CNA CLASSES IN MASSACUSETTS

he state of Massachusetts requires prospective CNAs to undergo a Nurse Aide Training (NAT) program legislated by the state health board. After passing, trainees may also take and prepare for the Red Cross’s Nurse Aide Competency Exam (NACE), which will give them the qualifications they need in order to serve as a CNA. If a candidate has already undergone 100 hours in a nursing discipline, they are able to skip the prerequisite NAT.

Eligibility to take CNA classes and work in Massachusetts varies depending on the location and the institution. Some requirements that exist across all state-approved courses include:

  • Passing a fingerprint type criminal background check

  • Varying levels of education depending on the institution (some require a GED or equivalent, others only ninth grade reading and comprehension skills)

  • Attendance of the orientation session

  • Current CPR card

  • Passing a physical exam

  • Being 18 years or over

  • Proof of immunization and a negative TB test
