CNA Certification Test Tips

Written CNA Exam tips and tricks from an experienced certified nursing assistant.

The CNA written exam includes seventy (70) multiple-choice questions. Ten of these questions are non-scored pre-test questions. There will be questions in the following categories: promotion of function and health of residents (health maintenance, psychosocial needs, personal care), role of the nurse aide (communication skills, personal responsibilities, roles of team members), basic nursing care the nurse aide provides (acute emergencies, routine needs, etc.), promotion of safety (comfort and safety, infection prevention, common injuries), specific care provided for residents with changes in health (care of the dying resident, physical and psychological problems). The time allotted to take the test is two hours. The CNA Plus Academy is designed to help you pass your Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) test with little or no classroom instruction involved. The site provides free practice tests that simulate the official exam. All test questions are based on the 2017 National Nurse Aide Assessment Program (NNAAP®), which is the written test that most states use. Copyright © 2017 All rights reserved.
