CNA CLASSES IN NEW MEXICO

In order to work as a Nurse Aide in New Mexico, the state’s Department of Health requires aspiring nurse aides to acquire state-approved CNA licensing so they can be certified and then included in the Nurse Aide Registry. In the state of New Mexico, nurse aides can work for 120 days while in search of a program. All the Nurse Aide’s classes and evaluation must be completed during this four-month grace period. Nurse Aides undergoing classes may only carry through duties for which they have undergone courses. A nurse aide’s status on the registry must be verified by employers before hiring. Military nurses, nursing students, and foreign nurses may directly take the exam as they can apply to be exempted from the program by providing the relevant documents to the Department of Health.

There are some requirements you must meet before you can become a CNA in New Mexico or even start classes. While lack of a high school diploma is not a basis for exclusion according to the DOH, CNA institutions might ask for it as a requirement before admission. However, there are few schools that will accept a passing grade while being assessed for entry.

The most important are:

  • Be a minimum of 18 years of age

  • Have a high school diploma or GED (dependent on the program)

  • Undergo a physical exam and TB Clearance (current within 6 months)

  • Have two forms of valid state-issued ID

  • Be up to date with your immunizations

  • Have a clean criminal record (fingerprinting)

  • Possess a current CPR card
