  2. how to answer nursing test questions?

    • CNAInstructor says:

      Taking up practice tests before the exam would be the easiest to get through those questions. The practical exposure and the classroom training that you would have undergone before the test should also help you get through with ease. Practice tests are available online.

  3. Every website have the same questions and answers for cna duities while on the job. im currently enroll in cna courses in job corps in i think we finish this course by feb or march…..

    • good luck, Shaquita!

    • What job corps are you at and how will it take you to get done ?

      • CNAInstructor says:

        Am not at job corps. But an enrollment specialist at the job corps in your area can definitely help. The program is offered for free and sometimes, you can get to take up LPN courses further there for free too. So, call up your local enrollment specialist to move this up further.

  4. i am a CRT-I and would like to get my CNA to work in hospital but do not have time or money to sit thru a complete course is there a way to test or be grandfathered in …. thanks

    • CNAInstructor says:

      I would suggest that you take the necessary online training part of it that comes for free. Further, there is no mandate that you need to get certified to work as a CNA. You can get into an entry level position to start with based on the knowledge you gain. so, once you get your job and start getting money, it is worth going in for certification
