CNA Training Programs in Missouri

When it comes to choosing what Certified Nurse Assistant certification program you want to enroll in Missouri, you have lots of options.

High schools, vocational colleges, some larger or more established hospitals or private clinics, and online schools all offer CNA training programs in Missouri. You'll want to figure out which best suits your needs and then starting phoning around or scouting for one, or contact Missouri's Department of Licensure of Board of Nursing for a guide of all CNA programs currently in good standing in the state.

If you're looking for a more academic or standard setting, you should consider enrolling in a CNA program in a college. If you want the same, but with added flexibility, you might consider one of several online schools that cater that host developed CNA programs. If you want to emphasize work experience, or begin working right away, you might consider taking the class from a private facility or larger nursing home/hospital that is offering it- they tend to subsidize training if you sign a contract to work for them for a set period of time after you’ve been certified.

Regardless of which one you settle on, your schooling will follow the same basic pattern. A little less than half of your time will be spent in the classroom, learning about how to care for the sick and injured, and what your legal responsibilities are, while the rest will be spent more or less working as a CNA under the close supervision and instruction of either a teacher or an experienced Registered Nurse.

Continuing Education for CNAs in Missouri

In order to keep working as a CNA in Missouri, you'll need to complete and keep records for 48 continuing education hours, to be completed every two years.

In Missouri, you can complete some of these hours through self-study either online our out of book, you can attend programs and seminars sponsored or put on by governmental or nationally recognized nursing organizations, you can participate in peer teaching exercises.

When you come to this time in your profession, you'll want to review the requirements yourself and make sure you're going to credit for what you're doing, but as of right now, the scope of what's possible is quite wide.

Through either online or campus based programs, aspiring C.N.A.s in Kansas City, St. Louis, Springfield and Independence, Missouri may be able to prepare themselves for the possibility of employment in some of the largest hospitals and healthcare facilities in the state including the St. Johns Mercy Medical Center, St. Anthony’s Medical Center, Barnes Jewish Hospital and Missouri Baptist Medical Center.
