How to Become a Certified Nursing Assistant in Ohio

As a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) in Ohio, you can expect an abundance of job opportunities and an average salary of around $26,000 per year.

In Ohio, CNAs are known as State-Tested Nurse Assistants (STNA). If you want to become an STNA, you must participate in a 75-hour training program that is approved for certification by the Ohio Department of Health. Currently, there are more than 400 of such programs in the state. After completing the required training, the next step is to apply for and take the STNA Certification Exam, also known as the Nurse Aide Registry Exam.

There are two parts to this test: a multiple-choice section and a short, practical skills evaluation. You will need to pass both parts with at least 70 percent in each to become certified.
