State Tested Nurse Aides (STNAs)
State Tested Nurse Aide (STNA)
The main role of a State Tested Nurse Aide (STNA) is to provide basic care to patients and assist them in daily activities that include bathing, dressing, feeding, and taking vital signs. The role of a CNA is not glamorous but is essential in long term care. Compassionate individuals with a deep desire to care for others are needed to fill these positions.
Education & Experience:
An STNA must complete a state-approved nurse aide training program, pass the nurse aide competency evaluation consisting of both a written and a skills test, and be listed in good standing as an STNA on the Ohio Nurse Aide Registry. A nurse aide training program consists of a minimum of 75 hours. Training will consist of at least 59 hours of classroom experience and skills training, and at least 16 hours of supervised resident care in a nursing facility. The training program must be approved by the Ohio Department of Health.
