CNA CLASSES IN MISSISSIPPI

The state of Mississippi requires classes before certification and registration of a CNA, though there is a 140-day grace period where those pursuing certification may offer direct care. It is up to the employer to make sure their employees are or will be registered within this time period. A minimum of 75 hours of class time must be completed before the exam unless you fall into one of the categories who can apply for class exemption (student nurses, military nurses, and graduate nurses).

Mississippi CNA Certification Requirements

The limitations on who can train and be certified as a CNA depends largely on the institution in Mississippi. There are no formal educational requirements, though many programs will require a reading and literacy competency test. A high school diploma or GED are not always prerequisites, but they are highly recommended. Other important requirements covering the whole state include:

  • Being 18 or older

  • Have a photo ID and passport-sized photographs

  • Proof of immunization (MMR, Varicella, Hep B) and a clean TB test within 6 months

  • Ability to lift a minimum of 40 pounds and stay upright for hours

  • CPR certification

  • Liability insurance

  • Passing a criminal background check
