There are a few steps on your pathway to becoming a Certified Nurse Assitant in Vermont.
To become eligible, you must have acceptable legal and professional backgrounds.
Other steps are taking the training course and passing the final test.
The Board of Nursing holds the jurisdiction of Licenced Nursing Assistants (LNAs) in Vermont.
If you choose to become CNAs in Vermont, then the first step is to take some of the state-approved training programs.
The programs last for at least 80 hours.
You can find the complete list of approved programs state-wise on the Board of Nursing Website.
However, in certain conditions, you can take the test without previously attending the program.
People who complete some programs approved by other states in the last two years might be able to take the test if the program meets Vermont’s standards.
On the other hand, PN or RN students with at least 30 hours of clinical experience can also take the test.
Vermont requires the aspiring nurses to take the NNAAP test -National Nursing Aide Assessment Program, administered by Pearson VUE and NACES Plus Foundation in Vermont.
The test has a practical and theoretical part.
During the practical part, you will be asked to demonstrate your skill in crucial nursing activities and duties.
The theoretical part can be taken both written or oral.
You can find all the necessary information, including handbooks for learning on the Pearson VUE website.
In Vermont, there are various locations across the state where you can take the test.

If you are unsuccessful, you will have to take the course again from the beginning and reapply for the test.

Course attendants will go through the entire procedure with their instructor’s step by step.
If you are eligible to take the test without attending the course, you can find more useful information on the Pearson VUE website and
Board of Nursing website.
You can find forms and lists of the necessary documentation.
The documentation might include a copy of your nursing school diploma, copies of past and out of state nursing certificates, licenses, etc.
