For those who are aspiring to become certified nursing assistants in Delaware, it would be best to know what the requirements are for CNA certification in Delaware. They are one of the strictest in implementing rules and regulations regarding applications for nursing aide certification as they seek to ensure the safety and well-being of their citizens. But for those who would really like to be honest caregivers in the area, they should be able to comply with the necessary qualifications as well as education that one should possess in order to be certified. It would include a completion of a state approved training program, successfully passing the nursing assistant examination and also passing the criminal background check in both state and federal levels.
The state of Delaware requires an applicant to finish training in one of the programs that they have approved of. They have an online list of these schools on their website and one can easily check into them to know what the requirements would be before enrolling into their program. The Division of Long Term Care Resident’s Protection is the one responsible for the approval of such institutions. They are required to have at least 150 hours of equally divided classroom teaching as well as clinical practice. It should be able to provide the students with the necessary skills and knowledge in healthcare such as emergency procedures, basic health care, communication skills, personal care for the patient and sufficient knowledge in mental health as well. The clinical practice will help the trainee in the actual environment when he gets a job as he would be working with real patients as well as under the supervision of professional healthcare providers. This will serve as a good foundation for his future practice as a nursing assistant.
After completing the training, he may then apply for the exam. The exam basically covers two parts which are the written exam and the skills demonstrations test. The applicant should successfully pass both types of exams as there would be no partial retaking of these tests. The applicant should also be able to pass the criminal background check by both the state and the federal governments. Some of the disqualifying offenses for nurse aide application are theft, offenses involving drugs and violence, neglect and abuse of residents or patients and other culpable acts while serving as a nurse aid. The latter offenses are for those who are applying for certification through endorsement.
You can also apply for certification by endorsement from another state. The applicant should be currently a certified nursing assistant on another state and should show proof of completion of the training and should be in good standing as a CNA on that state. He also should have worked for at least 3 months as a nurse aide or about 150 hours.The license can be renewed every 2 years which would require 64 hours of paid work as nursing assistant and 24 hours of continuing condition during the intervening years.
