CNA skills Refresher Class admin
There might come a time when you allow your nursing assistant certification to lapse. For instance, you will need to work at least 8 hours in a 2-year time frame in order to maintain your certification. Some states might require even more hours of employment to maintain an active certification. You might time take off from work for any number or reasons, thus allowing your certification to lapse.
The requirements for renewing a lapsed licensed can vary from one state to another. Many states will require you to take a CNA refresher course if your certification has lapsed. This course is intended to provide you with a re-introduction to the certified nursing assistant field if you have not worked in the field for awhile. The course is needed to make certain that you still have the knowledge and skills you need to work as a nursing assistant. The length of refresher training programs can vary depending on the state where you live and work and the facility providing the course.
