Can you get your CNA online?

Many people come to B&R Nursing School asking the same question.  “Can I get my CNA certification online?”

The short answer is yes but we will tell you how you can go about doing this.  You can not get a certification online, but you can study our material, skills, and other information that will prepare you to take the state CNA exam and pass it.  So, You can not get a certification online because the certification requires that you spend at least 40 hours in a clinical setting.  But, to get your license as a CNA, all you have to do is study the written and skills material, pay the exam fees, and take your test.  If you pass, you’re a CNA!!

Some Registered Nursing courses are now requiring that you complete a college approved CNA course.  This in turn means that you can not test out.  If they require a CNA license, then yes, you can test out.

There are many different variables to this answer.  But in short, you CAN get your CNA license online but not the actual certification.

Is a CNA certification needed to obtain a job in the Certified Nursing Assistant field?  No.  Just complete the state test. Once your state test is completed, you will be on the Nursing Board Database showing your name, certification, expiration date, et cetera.
