Prospective students need to understand these requirements before entering into a program. In Georgia, all approved certified nurse assistant training programs must provide students with comprehensive instruction on the requirements to work in all types of licensed health care facilities including nursing homes, home health agencies, hospices, hospitals, and intermediate care facilities. Programs require a minimum of 85 hours of training which must include twenty-four (24) hours of clinical rotation in a nursing home supervised by an approved Registered Nurse or Licensed Practical Nurse. The concepts and skills must include the following topics: Communication, interpersonal skills, infection control, safety & emergency procedures, promoting residents' independence and respecting residents' rights. After the completion of the State approved training program, the candidate must take and pass the competency evaluation examination. The examination included a written/oral and skills competency examination that evaluated by an approved Registered Nurse with the approved testing agency. Candidates who successfully pass the written/oral and skills competency examination are included on the Georgia Nurse Aide Registry. For those transferring from another state, they must not provide care in a facility until being placed in the registry. A nurse aide's employment
