CNA classes in PA

To maintain fully-accredited status at the federal level and with the state Board of Nursing, CNA classes in Pennsylvania must include a minimum of 75 hours of study. Most schools in the state exceed this total, and full-time program participants should expect their training to require an average of 8 to 13 weeks to complete. In order to be accepted into an accredited certified nursing program, applicants generally must have a high school diploma or GED, have proof of a recent TB test, clear a criminal background screening, and be at least 18 years old.

To become certified as a CNA in Pennsylvania, candidates must pass the NNAAP exam within 24 months of completing their training courses. A passing score on both the clinical skills demonstration and multiple-choice knowledge portions of the test is needed in order to receive an overall passing score. If an individual is unable to pass the exam in the prescribed time period, he or she will be required to repeat all prior training. To become employed as a CNA, the person must then get registered in the Pennsylvania Certified Nurse Aide Registry.

Pennsylvania’s rapidly expanding demand for certified nurses aides has led to a boom in accredited CNA classes in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Erie, Harrisburg and many other cities and towns around the state.
