CNA Programs in Oklahoma

Unlike many states, Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) training and certification is not required for everyone who wants to work as a nurses aide in the state of Oklahoma. In fact, it’s only if you want to work in a long term care, Medicaid or Medicare facility that you need to be trained and certified.

Bear in mind, however, that in many cases, you can be reimbursed for training – making it essentially free – and that there are more (and better paying) job opportunities for qualified Certified Nurse Assistants in Oklahoma. Let’s take a closer look at training and certification though, so that you can make informed decisions about what’s best for you.

Approved CNA Training Programs In Oklahoma

The Oklahoma State Department of Health is responsible for assessing and approving all CNA training programs in the state. Make sure that the program you choose is approved by the department too – otherwise you may have trouble with certification or with reimbursements.

Where to Find Approved CNA Training Programs In Oklahoma

Government approved certified nurses aide training programs in Oklahoma are offered by schools, colleges and community colleges, and through employer programs in the state (nursing homes and hospitals.)

Evaluation and Certification for a CNA in Oklahoma

Once you have completed your CNA training in Oklahoma, you will need to pass the competency exam. Once you have done that, you can apply to be registered on the Oklahoma State Department of Health’s nurse aide registry. The evaluation does require you to pass two components – theoretical and practical, with a 70% and 80% pass rate respectively.

What Does the CNA Training Course in Oklahoma Cover?

CNA or certified nurses aide programs in Oklahoma are designed to prepare you for employment in the healthcare field. The program covers everything from patient rights to basic nursing, patient hygiene and rehabilitation, as well as many other core competencies. Once you have completed the training, you will be ready to move on to the final step in the process – evaluation and registration, and then you will be able to take any CNA job in Oklahoma.

Reimbursement for Studies Towards a CNA Qualification in Oklahoma

Like many other states, Oklahoma has a program that reimburses qualified Certified Nurse Aides for the cost of their studies, if they find employment before, or within the twelve months after they have completed their studies. Reimbursement may vary from case to case, so make sure you enquire before you begin your training program, or accept an offer of employment.

Oklahoma CNA Salary and Career Prospects

In Oklahoma, as with many other parts of the US, there is a growing demand for CNA’s and other medical staff. Currently, the growth between now and 2016 in the field is expected to be a little over 17%. The current salary average for a CNA in the state is a little under $20,000 per annum, which is below the national average, but still a respectable salary given the minimal study required.

All in all, the CNA field is one with growth potential. It’s one that requires minimal training, and that includes the possibility of free studies. Well worth it, if you’re looking to get into the healthcare field on a shoestring.
