Michigan residents have to complete an official state training course to become eligible for the certificate.
The current list of all state-approved training programs can be found on the Division of Long Term Care website.
The programs last for 100 hours.
But, people who complete the equivalent nurse aide programs in other states can take the exam in Michigan without taking the course.
In Michigan, aspiring nurses have to pass the Nurse Aide Competency Evaluation.
It consists of two parts – a skills check and a knowledge test, both are obligatory.
During the skills demonstration, you will have to perform five different nursing assistant duties which include indirect skills and proper hand hygiene.
The knowledge test you can take either in a written or an oral format, whichever is more convenient for you.
In Michigan, there are several locations across the state where you can take the test.
You can find the list of all locations and schedule a testing date online.
Candidates have a few attempts and a deadline in which they must pass the test.
If they fail, they have to take the training course again from the beginning.
In Michigan, there are two fees you have to pay.
You pay $100 to the testing site, and $76.50 to the Prometric with all registration forms.
Candidates who attend the official training program can ask their instructor to help them with the application procedure.
All other candidates can find necessary forms and requirements on the Prometric website.
Each candidate will have to submit documentation, but it will vary on its eligibility route.
For example, some candidates have to submit the expired CNA licenses and out-of-state certifications, while others have to submit copies of nursing school diplomas, recommendation letters, verification of past CNA certificate, and instructors’ signature on the application form.
In Michigan, there is a higher demand for CNA across the state.
Therefore, the number of available official nursing assistant school is rising.
