As part of your CNA exam, you will need to demonstrate efficiency in performing various practical skills. The skills part is by far the most important part of the exam and constitutes the most marks. While you will learn these skills during the hands-on part of your training course, we have decided to offer them in a condensed version to help you revise just before the exam.
Each skill listed below has a brief guide as well as a video demonstrating the best way to perform the skill.
• Provides catheter care for female
• Provides foot care on one foot.
• Transfers from bed to wheelchair using transfer belt
Depending on the area where you are doing your Nursing assistant exam, the skills part of the test can be a little different. In some states the number of skills tested will be between three to five while others will make you perform as many as 6 different skills. You can however rest assured that there is little difference in the performance of particular skills on a state by state basis.
One of the best ways to study these CNA skills is to perform them on friends. You can have a friend act as a patient while you practice on her.
As always, you can send us an email using the contact page at the top if you have any suggestion or are finding a skill difficult to master. We will do our best to help.
