CNA Classes in Illinois (IL)

To become a CNA in Illinois you need to take training classes. After passing the test, you will be placed on the state Health Care Worker Registry. Then you will be able to work as a CNA.

Requirements

  • 16 years old
  • Speak and understand English
  • 8 years of grade school
  • Prove employment history
  • Pass a criminal history record check

Costs

The cost of the training program is $400 to $800.

Testing fees include:

  • First-time applicants – $65
  • Translated exam – $45
  • Written retake – $35
  • Retake (less than 24 months’ work experience) – $65

How to Apply

You may be able to take the test without the training if you:

  • Have an RN or LPN license in any state
  • Have military experience as a CNA
  • Are a graduate nurse or a nursing student with at least 40 hours of clinical work
  • Have taken similar CNA training in another country.

All others must take a state-approved training program.

Within 24 months after the training, you will have three attempts to pass the test. If you do not pass, you will need to retake the training.

Renewal

If you work full time as a paid CNA, you will retain your certification. The state does not issue certificates to CNAs.
