Arkansas requires students to complete a minimum of 75 hours of CNA class course work and 100 hours of clinical rotation before challenging the state CNA examination. The long Term Care Office sets the guidelines for the nursing assistant certification exam.  All of the Arkansas testing centers must adhere to these requirements.  Prospective CNAs must attend training programs that have been approved by the state of Arkansas.

The Arkansas CNA training ensures the student both academic and clinical success.  Students will be exposed to varied patient population, many types of medical equipment, and to professionals in the health field, which will provide a foundation for entering the Nurse's Aide profession.

Arkansas Nursing Assistant training Certification Prerequisites

  • current background check,
  • two fingerprint cards,
  • Photo ID, two photos (passport size).
  • Negative TB test that was within the past 6 months and proof of immunizations 
  • High school diploma or GED.
