CNA CLASSES IN PENNSYLVANIA

With a population of nearly 13 million people, Pennsylvania hospitals and medical facilities find themselves in need of more nurses and nursing assistants. Some healthcare facilities are critically understaffed and need to hire trained help. People who are trained as certified nursing assistants (CNAs) are in a good position to meet the demand for help in the area. Aspiring Pennsylvania CNAs will need to complete background evaluations and meet the state’s requirements for classes and tests. There are many places that offer CNA classes in Pennsylvania and that can assist interested candidates in finding work as a nursing assistant.

The requirements for courses may vary slightly based on individual employers, but in general, the list of items below are required to be a CNA in Pennsylvania. Interested candidates need to complete a state-approved program before they can take the CNA certification exam. They should also expect a background check and demonstrate that they have lived in the state for at least two years. It is also necessary to have a high school diploma or an equivalent. Some other requirements include:

  • Criminal history records

  • Be at least 16 years old (some places in the state may require an age of at least 18 years)

  • Competency in math and English

  • Pass a physical exam

  • Proof of immunization of tetanus, mumps, measles, and rubella

  • A negative two-step Mantoux

  • The ability to stand for hours and lift at least 40 pounds

Information in your criminal history records may or may not disqualify some candidates.
