How to Make sure that you will Become a Nurse One day

Becoming a nurse is no walk in the park. You have to study long hours. Then after you graduation you must work long hours gaining needed work experience as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). But in order to become a CNA you have to pass the exam and that will take some work.

Now, firstly do not panic because if you do not pass the exam the first time you are allowed to take it three more times within two after you have completed the CNA training program.  It is nice to know that you have that safety net so to speak but it is best to not count on it at all but rather focus on preparing as best you can to not only take the exam but pass it and be on your way to the CNA certification.

The best way to prepare and pass the exam is to study for it. Sign up for one of the numerous national examination course providers such as Kaplan. Be sure to sign up for their course that not only gives you the study materials but also the mock exams so that you will have a realistic idea of how you would perform during the actual exam.

Then you need to get together with some fellow students and form a study group. You will be able to brainstorm and pick each other’s brains not only for this exam but it will also assist you in your CNA training to study this way. Just before the exam date is due, take a day or two and just relax and do not worry about it because you do not want to become mentally exhausted so close to test time.  On exam day go in, relax and you will be surprised at how much your training and studying will come back to you and you leave the examination room as not only a graduate but an official CNA.
