CNA Programs in Wyoming

You may have noticed that there are plenty of job offers for certified nurses aides in Wyoming. That’s because this is one of the fastest growing demand areas in healthcare – not just in Wyoming, but throughout the US.

Before you rush out to sign up for Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) classes, however, there are a few things you need to know about becoming a nurses aide in Wyoming.

State Approval for CNA Training Programs in Wyoming

Like most states, Wyoming requires that Certified Nursing Assistant training programs meet a few minimum requirements in terms of content and curriculum. In order to ensure that they do, the Wyoming Department of Health Office of Health Care Licensing and Surveys is tasked with assessing and approving all nurses aide training programs in the state.

Unless the program you choose is state approved, you cannot become a certified nurses aide in the state of Wyoming, so make sure that’s the first question you ask about any course.

What Do State Approved CNA Training Programs In Wyoming Teach You?

The course structure and syllabus for state approved CNA training schools in Wyoming is designed to teach you everything you need to know to work as a nurses aide anywhere in the state.

Programs are offered by colleges, high schools, nursing homes and private training institutions in the state, and you’re free to choose any one that’s convenient for you – as long as it has the Wyoming Health Department’s stamp of approval!

There’s also a program in the state that offers reimbursement for CNA training, in accordance with federal law. That means that if you already have a job offer to become a CNA in Wyoming, or you find a job within a year of training, you may be able to study for free.

CNA Certification in Wyoming

As with most other states, CNA training in Wyoming is only the first step in becoming a licensed nurses aide in the state. Even after you complete an accredited training program, you still need to pass the NNAAP competency test, before you can register.

The NNAAP or National Nurses Aide Assessment Program is an exam in two parts, that tests your practical and theoretical skill and knowledge, and once you’ve passed it, you can apply for inclusion on the Wyoming CNA Registry, and for any state or private CNA jobs in Wyoming.

Prospects and Salary for a Wyoming CNA

There’s expected to be more than 22% increase in the demand for trained and certified nurse assistants in Wyoming between now and 2016, which makes this a career choice with plenty of scope.

Average salaries for Certified Nursing Assistants in Wyoming are also very respectable, given the limited training required, and you can expect to earn an average of around $26,000 per year, depending on your skill level, and where you find a job.

Many CNA’s also find that they can use their certification as a springboard into other areas of healthcare, whether they choose the clinical side of things, and become a RN, or whether they opt for a management or administration career.
