CNA Classes in Arizona (AZ)

To become a CNA in Arizona you need to take training classes. After passing the exam, you will be placed on the state Nurse Aide Registry. Then you will be able to work as a CNA.

Requirements

  • 16 years old
  • Pass a criminal background check

Costs

The cost of the training program approved by the Board of Nursing is $400 to $600.

Testing fees include:

  • Written – $28
  • Skills Test – $80
  • Oral Written – $38

The same fees apply for retesting. These fees may be reduced if you work at a healthcare facility that qualifies for discounts. So ask your employer if such a discount applies.

How to Apply

If you have worked as a CNA in another state, you may be able to transfer your certification without taking the exam if:

  • You provide proof of completion of a 120-hour training program or a 75-hour program, if it is approved and accepted by the state.
    • You have also worked for at least 45 hours as a CNA.

Licensed LPN or RN graduates can take the written exam to earn CNA certification.

All others must complete a training program.

The course takes about 6 weeks to finish. It requires 120 hours of classroom training and 100 hours of hands-on training. You will need to pass the exam within 24 months, or you will have to retrain.

Renewal

  • Your CNA certification is valid for 2 years from the date of issue.
  • You need to verify that you have worked as a CNA for a minimum of 160 hours in the past 2 years.
  • You must also earn 12 hours of continuing education per year.
