Tired of feeling like you are not making a difference in your current job? Looking for a way to earn a better salary and have flexible working hours? Regardless of your reasons for looking for a stable career in healthcare, enrolling in CNA classes in Missouri is a great way to get started.

I’m not sure about leaving my current job to take  CNA classes, is there another way?

Yes! Many locations like the Red Cross offer CNA programs and classes during the day or at night, with extended options available. You can even be attending high school and take your CNA course, the options are endless and the schedules are really flexible.

How long are the CNA training programs?

In Missouri, the state approved CNA programs will have a minimum of 75 hours spent in a classroom. During this time you will learn all about providing the activities of daily life for the client including feeding, bathing, dressing, personal care, foot care, massage, household duties and many other skills.

The second part of the training involves 100 hours of on the job training, which means that you will spend time in a licensed nursing home caring for patients under the supervisor of a Registered Nurse of Licensed Practical Nurse. Once you have successfully completed both your CNA classes and training, then you will move on to complete the examination before you can be entered into the Missouri Registry as an active certified nursing assistant.

How much will CNA training cost? I can’t afford an expensive program.

Depending on your specific training program, you can pay as little as $500 or as much as $1,000 for CNA classes in Missouri. However, hospitals and nursing homes do offer incentives for students who wish to take the program, as long as they agree to work at the facility for a period of between 1-3 years after successful completion of the program and the exam.

What are the requirements for getting into  CNA programs in Missouri?

You do not need a high school diploma in order to get into one of the CNA programs in Missouri, but you do need to be at least 18 years of age and have a clear TB test (from the last 6 months) or a clear chest x-ray that is no more than 5 years old.

You will also need a clear criminal background check and have no history of abuse working with the vulnerable sector. You must also not be listed on the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services employee disqualification list. For more information, click here.

Do I have to take a test to become a CNA in Mossouri?

Yes, after completing your  CNA training you will need to take an exam. There is a multiple-choice test as well as a skills test. You need to pass both in order to be successful and at that point you will become licensed to work as a CNA in Missouri

What is the salary range for a CNA in Missouri?

You can expect an annual salary of $29,000 per year, plus any other benefits offered by the employer. This is higher than the national average, which is understandable considering the fact that healthcare in general is considered to be a high-demand field. In fact, over the course of the next six years the need for healthcare workers, including CNA’s will increase by 28%.

 

How often do I have to renew my CNA license?

You will need to renew every two years and have worked at least 8 hours in that time period. Check the Registry in order to check that your status is listed as active.

Once you finish your CNA classes in Missouri, you can expect a long career in healthcare working as a certified nursing assistant. Many people decide to make the leap and take their CNA training one step further and end up working as Registered Nurses or even Nursing Administrators. Many prominent hospital presidents started off working as a Certified Nurse Aide, which goes to show that there are many permutations that result in a happy, full career when you start off working as a CNA in Missouri.
