What can I expect from my CNA Exam?
If you attend the class, practice your nursing skills and review your manual and study guides, you will pass your final exam. We make it fun and easy to understand, we make it practical. We will issue you a study guide and a take home DVD to help you prepare.
All CNA training facilities in Southern Indiana, except Indiana Health Careers, are required by the State to forward your CNA final exam testing application to Ivy Tech -Indianapolis for your CNA final exam. The college will provide you the final exam in about 30 days from receiving your application.
Not at Indiana Health Careers!. The State allows us to provide you the final CNA exam. We were awarded this opportunity in 2009 after receiving proper training from the State. Instead of Ivy Tech providing our students with the final exam, your classroom instructor will provide you the exam (while providing for your privacy) and will request your CNA nursing numbers from the State for you. We will guide you through the process. If you desire, we can provide you the final exam the week after completing your clinical. We can oral test you if needed vs written format. We allow you three opportunities to pass your final exam, not just one. You have 24 months to be tested and placed on the nursing registry. A DVD will be issued to you to help you practice.
