CNA Classes in Massachusetts (MA)

To become a CNA in Massachusetts you need to take training classes. Then you pass a competency exam. 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
  • Be educated to a 9th grade level
  • Pass a health exam with a TB test
  • Pass a criminal background check with fingerprinting

Costs

The cost of the training program approved by the Board of Nursing is about $1200. If you work for a qualified nursing home or long-term care facility, the fees will be paid by the employer.

The fee for the exam is $93.

How to Apply

You may be able to take the exam without the required training course if you are:

  • A CNA with a lapsed certification that has been inactive for over 4 months. You would only need to take a refresher course.
  • A foreign-trained nurse with proof of training who will submit the proper application
  • A graduate or student of a nursing degree program
  • A former military person with proof of CNA training
  • A person who has completed training in another state.

All others must take the training course. If you are enrolled in a training program, you may work as a CNA for not more than 120 days prior to receiving your certification.

The classes take about 4 months to finish. They require a total of 75 hours of classroom instruction and clinical work. After completing your training, you must take the exam within 12 months or you will have to retrain. Three attempts are allowed. If you do not pass, you will need to retrain.

Renewal

Your CNA certification will expire 24 months from the date of issue. You can only renew it if you have worked as a paid CNA for at least 8 hours. A renewal notice will be sent about 2 months before it expires. If you let it expire, you will have to retest.
