Missouri CNA Training

Doctors and nurses form the backbone of a hospital staff. These medical professionals attend school for many years in order to earn the certification necessary to diagnose and treat patients. However, these individuals depend on a strong support staff to help them make the most efficient use of their time, and maintain a high level of medical care. For anyone who has always wanted to work closely with health care professionals to improve people's lives, it might be time to consider Missouri CNA classes.

Certified nursing assistants are able to provide support to doctors and nurses as they provide care to their patients. Nursing assistants might record patient histories, take vital signs, discuss behaviors that can be used to prevent illness and injury, as well as answering questions that patients might have about their treatment plan. Anyone who enjoys working with people and helping them to take better care of their loved ones may really enjoy a career as a CNA.

The Missouri state-approved CNA course requires 75 hours of classroom training and 100 hours of on-the-job training. The exam is in 2 parts: written and practicum.

Having an 'active' status in the Missouri CNA directory means that a CNA has met all of the requirements and has no incidences of misconduct (abuse, neglect, etc.) on his or her record. If a certified individual does not work as a CNA for at least one day in a 24 month period, he or she will cease to be certified and must retake the exam. Once the individual passes the exam, he or she will then be eligible once again to work as a CNA.

A CNA can receive an 'expired' status if he or she has not performed paid nursing services within the past 5 years. In order to be returned to an 'active' status, the CNA must submit written proof that they received payment for nursing or nursing-related services, or they must retake the certification exam.

Certain individuals may meet special criteria and are not required to take the CNA training course and may immediately move on to take the exam. These individuals include:

  • Individuals who are currently enrolled in LPN or RN classes who have passed a Fundamentals of Nursing that included a clinical rotation in the past 5 years.
  • Individuals who have an 'active' status on another state's CNA registry and are in good standing. If no employment dates are listed on the register, the individual is required to submit proof of employment from within the past 2 years.
  • Individuals who have completed a nursing program outside of the United States and have not yet become licensed. These individuals need to submit a copy of their nursing license or certificate, their school transcripts translated into English, and a copy of a criminal background check that has been translated into English).
  • Individuals who received training in a long-term care unit of a hospital and have worked there for at least one year. These individuals need to submit proof of hospital training and a letter confirming dates of employment and the position that the individual held there.
  • Individuals whose education and training in gerontology and health occupations includes the components of the approved training curriculum may challenge the examination after completing the parts of the training program deemed to be necessary based on evaluation of their credentials by the supervisor of Health Education, Division of Senior Services and Regulation.
  • Individuals who are listed on the CNA registry as 'inactive.'
  • Individuals who have been trained in acute care units in hospitals as nursing assistants or who have trained as psychiatric aides. These individuals may take the exam after completing the orientation module with special emphasis on geriatric residents' needs and orientation to the facility, and completing the 100 hours of on-the-job training in a long-term care facility or long-term care unit of a hospital. The applicant must submit verification of hospital training and a letter proving the individuals dates of employment and position held or a psychiatric certificate.
