Looking for a program that fits your life? CNA NursingPrep's online course provides all the tools you need to prepare for, challenge and pass your state certification exam!*
*Florida, Montana and Minnesota allow individuals to challenge the CNA exam. This online course is all you need to successfully pass the challenge exam in those states. Please check with your state before enrolling.
Montana: allows one opportunity to challenge and pass the state examination. If a candidate does not pass, they will be required to take an approved nurse aide training program. For information regarding challenging, please call Headmaster at 406-442-8656.
Minnesota: does have a test out option. At a minimum, an individual would need to take and pass both the written nursing assistant test and the skills test at an approved MN testing site. An individual has three tries to pass each test. Go to: www.health.state.mn.us/nar you will find: a list of approved MN testing sites (St Paul College and Inver Hills CC do not offer the test out option.), a link to sample written test questions & a link to the “candidate handbook” that lists the skills one could be tested on and the step order.
