Become a CNA in Missouri

If you're looking to become a CNA, or Certified Nurse Assistant, in Missouri, then there are a few steps you'll have to take.

  1. First, you'll want to find and enroll in a CNA certification program. These are inspected and approved by the Missouri Board of Nursing- you'll want to go to one in good standing.
  2. When picking a Missouri CNA certification program, there are all sorts of options. Hospitals, private clinics, technical and vocational colleges, all offer CNA programs in Missouri, and foster a different type of environment. Regardless, the state mandated curriculum is 75 hours in class and 100 hours on-the-job training. It'll probably take two or three months to rack those hours up.
  3. Once you've graduated, you'll need to take the Nurse Aide Exam, an exam that needs to be passed before you can fully work as a CNA in the state. The test costs $60 dollars and contains two parts; a written examination, and a pretend clinical trial involving an actor pretending to be a client.

  4. Once the exam has been passed, you'll need only to wait for the Missouri Board of Nursing to add your name to the registry, after which you will be able to work and apply for work as a CNA in the state.
  5. In order to remain on the registry as active, you'll want to work at least one day every two years. If you fail to do that, you'll be listed as inactive, which requires you to retake the Nurse Aide Exam to work again. If you don't work for five years, you'll become expired- which means you'll need to start from scratch.
