There are some things you should know about CNA regulations in the state of Wyoming if you are planning to work as a certified nursing assistant. It is sometimes possible to receive nursing aide training for free in Wyoming. Some employers (especially in long-term care facilities) will hire someone to work as a nursing aide and will provide or pay for all necessary training for an individual to sit for the nursing assistant certification exam. Read school reviews below.
Nursing assistants or nursing aides who are working to become certified are given four months to become certified. Individuals can be hired for employment and then will have up to four months to complete certification. This is often referred to as the one hindered and twenty days rule. The four months gives individuals who have completed a CNA training program a four-month grace period to take and pass the certification exam. Certified nursing assistant students who need to take time off of their training programs for health or personal reasons have four-months to complete their training and receive certification as well. A certified nursing assistant who has allowed their certification to lapse also has four months to renew their certification. Wyoming does all they can to make it easy for nursing assistants to retain certification.
