CNA Classes in Utah
Eighty hours of a certified CNA program must be completed by
those looking to pursue their CNA license in the state of Utah. The work, like so many other states requirements,
requires classroom and clinical instruction to be approved and accredited by the state. The division of how many
hours of each are somewhat left to the discretion of the institution providing the coursework, just as the cost of
the classes itself. The written portion or classroom instruction, however, will be twenty hours longer than the
clinical rotation. The goal of this differential is to prepare students for the world of the mental rigors of a job
in this field.
After completing this coursework,
a student will be required to sit for the Utah CNA exam. Students will be given three attempts to pass both the
written and clinical or manual assessment portions of the exam. If failed, the exam and all of the training will
have to be taken again from the beginning. If passed and a state and federal background check are as well, then an
individual will be a licensed CNA though they are responsible for all fees, including the testing fee of roughly
one hundred dollars.
