Kansas residents have to take the training course approved by the state.
The Department of Aging and Disability Services’ official website has the list of all currently approved training programs.
A program must last at least 90 hours and at least half of it must be practical clinical guidance to become approved.
The training course has two parts.
After you are done with the first part, you are designated as a Nurse Aide Trainee II.
During that time, you have four months to work, until you have to take the test.
However, not everyone needs to take this procedure.
For example, healthcare workers can apply for the test directly, without attending the course.
In Kansas, you have to pass the official state’s Nurse Aide Test.
The assessment includes multiple-choice questions.
To pass, you need to have at least 75% success.
In Kansas, you can pick where you will be tested among various locations across the state.
People who fail can take the exam three times and have a deadline in which they must succeed.
Otherwise, they need to take the course again.
The Department of Health and Disability Services can answer any question you may have related to the application process.
If you are attending the official training program, you can ask your instructor for help.
All candidates can be asked to submit some supporting documents.
The list of documents you will need to provide depends on your eligibility route.
Some candidates must submit copies of other nursing certificates, past licenses, out-of-state certifications, copy of nursing school diploma, instructor signature on the application form, etc.
You can verify your certification status online in Kansas.
After you earn the certificate, you will have to work in the field to maintain the certificate.
Those who are inactive for more than two years will have to go on a refresher course.
