The state of Delaware works hard to ensure that all certified nursing assistants are well trained and ready to provide the best possible nursing assistant care to their patients. The federal government says that nursing assistants must receive at least 75 hours of training in order to become a CNA. Delaware sets much higher standards by requiring state approved training courses to offer 150 hours of training for nursing assistant students. The hours must include 75 classroom hours and 75 clinical hours. Delaware also makes it possible for nursing assistants who have been employed for at least three years to advance in their nursing assistant career.

Delaware has an advanced CNA program for interested nursing assistants. Nursing assistants with a few years under their belt can opt to become Senior Certified Nursing Assistants. These nursing aides will have advanced knowledge and develop even more skills. In order to receive this certification, a nursing assistant must complete a 50 hour training program that has been designed by the state of Delaware. Anyone who complete a certified nursing assistant course that has been accredited by the state of Delaware will be able to take the nursing assistant competency exam. Upon passing this exam, individuals can start their CNA career.
