Frequently Asked Questions

A Certified Nursing Assistant is responsible for the routine care and treatment of sick, disabled, and terminally ill patients under the direct supervision of nurses in nursing homes, rehabilitation, hospitals, hospices, home health agencies and private homes. C.N.A.s engage in tasks such as transferring and transporting patients, giving bed baths, giving back rubs,making up hospital beds, and monitoring vital signs. Certified Nursing Assistants are qualified for employment as entry level care givers in hospitals, long term care agencies, clinics, physician offices, and clients’ homes. Many C.N.A.s continue with education that leads to certification as a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse.
We offer a C.N.A. Exam Prep Course that helps you pass the state of Florida nursing assistant examination in weeks instead of months. We are owned and operated by local medical professionals who are dedicated to the services that they provide to their students and to the community. We are not simply administrators who run a prep school. Each instructor at FTA holds an active medical license for the State of Florida. Therefore, we prepare our students for the exam and for the "real world". We go above and beyond by offering our students a Clinical Skills Video and/or an additional week of training for a reduced cost. We also keep our class sizes small and allow for time between classes so that we can focus and individualize the education we provide based on each student's needs.
No, you are not required to take any course prior to challenging the exam. However, even if you have experience as a nurse assistant, challenging the exam can prove quite difficult. You will be assigned to perform 3 of the skills and be observed by a nurse evaluator. Successful completion of each skill is required in order for you to pass, miss one thing and you will fail. Our prep course will teach you the skills required to pass the State's C.N.A. exam.
Applications are accepted at any time and students are accepted on a first come, first served basis. If you are not able to come to the school in advance, you will be given an application and brief questionnaire on the first day of class. Your full payment or down payment can be made on-line securely via our Register On-Line page to reserve your seat. Additionally, please present a copy of your Photo Identification card (license or state issued ID only) on the first day of class.
Anyone who is at least 18 years of age may take the state exam, with or without formal training. A challenger of the State exam is a person who has not completed an 120 hour State approved course. A Challenger takes the same State exam as the other students who attended longer programs and are issued the same Florida C.N.A. license if they can successfully pass the examination. Candidates will be given 3 attempts to pass both portions of the C.N.A. examinaton before they are required to attend an 120 hour State approved C.N.A. training program.
