How to Become a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) in Vermont

The State of Vermont requires that Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) professionals be licensed under Vermont’s regulations as a Licensed Nurse Assistant (LNA).   This is the professional designation in this state.  To become a CNA in Vermont, applicants must first complete a Certified Nursing Assistant course of study that encompasses a minimum of 75 hours, including a three credit class on nursing fundamentals.

Then, students should obtain their completed Nursing Assistant Program Verification Form, fill out, sign, and date an application to take the certification exam and enclose it in a sealed envelope, along with a photocopy of your current driver’s license, government issued ID or passport. The completed application, verification form, ID and fee should be mailed to:

Attn: The Vermont State Board of Nursing
Office of Professional Regulation
National Life Building, North, Floor 2
Montpelier, VT 05620-3402

Applicants will be notified of test location and dates.

During the written part of the nursing assistant test, applicants will have a maximum of ninety (90) minutes to complete the 72 question written test. The applicants’ knowledge of safety, infection control, personal care, mental health, resident rights, communication, data collection, basic nursing skills, role and responsibility, disease processes and older adult growth and development will be tested.

During the second part of the examination, which will take 45 minutes, a skill test will evaluate nurse assistant skills, such as hand washing, fluid intake and feeding a patient.

After successfully passing both the written and skill test, applicants are eligible to attain licensure with the Vermont Board of Nursing.
