None of that has to stop you, though, when you choose to become a certified nursing assistant in Wisconsin. You do not have to spend years training and you do not have to spend thousands of dollars for CNA programs. In fact, on average, a person can get CNA certification in Wisconsin for about $800 dollars in about 12 weeks. Just imaging starting your new job as a certified nursing assistant in less than four months after completing your CNA classes in Wisconsin!

Certified nursing assistants in Wisconsin make $24,000 on average. Of course, you would start out a little lower than that, but you can still expect a salary over $20,000. That certainly outweighs the training cost!

Wisconsin CNA Certification Basics

If you make the decision to become a certified nursing assistant in Wisconsin, the first thing you will need to do is attend one of the proper CNA programs in the area. In the state of Wisconsin, no online schools are considered qualified. You will need to attend a college or training program in person and it should be approved by the state. CNA programs in Wisconsin require a minimum of 120 credit hours. Those hours will be broken up between specific CNA classes, lab practice, and hands on training called clinicals.

State guidelines also require CNA classes in Wisconsin to dedicate time to specific areas of training. For example, a minimum of 32 hours of clinical training is required to meet those guidelines. The following examples will give you an idea of what you can expect to learn while attending a CNA training program:

  • Emergency response and preparedness
  • HIPPA laws
  • Patients rights
  • Infection response and control
  • Physically limited patient transfer
  • Physically challenged patient assistance
  • Fire response training

Choosing CNA Classes in Wisconsin

What if I Cannot Afford CNA Classes?

Even at about $1,000, CNA classes can be over the budget of some people. However, that does not mean you have to give up your dream of working in the medical field. Instead, you can find ways to make CNA training programs more affordable. Here are some options that could work for you.

  • Look for schools that offer the lowest tuition option. Not all of the approved CNA programs are the same and some will offer lower tuition’s and books.
  • Look for nursing homes and assisted living facilities that will help you pay for your CNA classes. Often, many medical facilities will have programs in which people can agree to work for them for a certain number of years. In exchange, their CNA classes will be partially paid for. In some cases, the facility will pay one hundred percent of the training cost.

The Final Steps for Wisconsin CNA Certification

After taking CNA classes in Wisconsin, you only have a few more things to do in order to get your CNA certification. You will need to take the Wisconsin CNA exam to become licensed. This exam is administered by Pearson Vue, so you can look here to find out more information on how to schedule it. After you have passed the exam, you will need to register with the state as a CNA. You can do that here.

Choosing a career as a CNA in Wisconsin can be exciting, fast paced and rewarding. Since it takes such a short time to get the training you need, your CNA dreams can come true in just a few months. Who said you had to spend thousands of dollars on medical field education? Your dream career could be just around the corner. Just make sure you follow Wisconsin regulations for CNA certification so that you can get started with your new career without a hitch.
