CNA Exam Prep

Nurse Aide Exam Prep

Are you ready to begin a career as a nursing assistant and feel that you can challenge the CNA Exam? We are here to provide the essential kills and knowledge needed to pass! We provide hands on in-person tutoring on how to perform with excellence on your exam.

Challenge the CNA Exam

Challenging the CNA exam means that you sign up for and take the CNA exam without going through the typical training course required in the CNA Program. If you take and pass the exam, you will receive your certification the same as you would if you went through a training course. You can challenge the exam up to three times before being required to attend the CNA Program training course.

If you’re a compassionate people person and enjoy helping others, this role could be right for you. Certified nursing assistants must be able to listen to patients’ concerns and ask questions to determine their needs. In nursing or long-term care facilities, a CNA is often a patient’s main caregiver. The opportunity to develop personal relationships with patients and make an impact on their daily lives can make this an emotionally rewarding career.

Practical & Written Test Subjects Covered:

A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) plays a crucial role in providing direct care to patients in various healthcare settings such as hospitals, nursing homes, and home care. As an integral part of the care team, CNAs assist patients with essential daily activities, including eating, bathing, grooming, mobility, and more. They contribute to ensuring the well-being and comfort of patients under their care.
