CNA Classes in
The Virginia CNA training program
ranges in its length and must be completed by all students prior to sitting for the state licensure exam. Normally,
the classwork must be seventy-five to over a hundred hours and include written examination and testing, as well as
clinical work in a practical setting. The normal or average length can be up to a split of eighty hours in written
teaching and lecture with about an additional forty hours spent on clinical rotations. The Virginia coursework
curriculum is one in which there is a focus on patient care and on the direct relationship between CNA and client.
The cost of the program varies based on the institution providing the instruction to the training
After passing or finishing the
coursework, those attempting to become a
CNA in Virginia will be required to pass a state licensure exam. There is a multiple choice section, assessing
the knowledge from classroom instruction, and a manual assessment of five skills learned by the student during
their training. If one section is not passed, the test is considered failed. A student must take the test for a
maximum of no more than three times to pass. If failed, they must do all coursework again.
