CNA Certification (Prometric)

What is the Prometric Exam?

The Nurse Aide Prometric exam is the certifying test that qualifying nurse aides must take in order to become a Certified Nurse Aide or CNA. 

This exam is broken up into two portions – a written portion and a clinical, or hands-on portion.

Written Portion

  • Timed Exam (90 minutes)
  • 60 questions
    • 50 scored questions.
    • 10 un-scored questions (for example: name, date, etc.)

Clinical Portion

  • Hands-on
  • 5 nursing skills 
    • Chosen at random

Why should I take the Prometric Exam?

Taking & passing the Nurse Aide Prometric Exam allows you to officially become a Certified Nursing Assistant, and opens the door to employment opportunities that only certified & licensed healthcare professionals can take advantage of – such as in Hospitals & Nursing Homes.

It will also increase your hourly pay rate, with most CNAs seeing a $2 an hour increase over their non-certified counterparts. For a CNA working fulltime – that’s an extra $4,000 a year on average just for getting certified!
