In WA there is no way to get your CNA license without taking a CNA class and then testing. We have an EMT with years of experience who has become our monitor tech/ward clerk in the ER. With the remodel, we are going to change the patient flow and the techs will be required to have their CNA license. Are there any states out there that would allow another type of medical professional to take the CNA test without going through the ‘proper’ course work? Just wondering.
Just found out she spent money and got her RNA which would accept her EMT history … but the hospital policy is not to accept the RNA and demands the CNA.
You can work as a CNA in hospitals in Ar and Tx without CNA license. You have to either be in school as a nurse or have been a EMT or EMS.
In California you can work as a Student Nurse while you are in school with out your CNA but basically doing the same work though typically getting paid better than a CNA would. Also after your first quarter of nursing school you can take the test for your CNA.
