Kansas, KS | CNA Certification Training Programs

Depending on your goals and qualifications to meet the CNA requirements in Kansas, KS you may want to answer a few basic questions before you proceed on the right education path. 

  1. Please Choose Your Highest Level of Education

The health sector of Kansas’s economy is growing, and the demand for CNAs is growing along with it. Like many other states, there is a shortage of nursing staff in Kansas. This means opportunities for CNAs in Kansas are plentiful. Often, CNAs in the state, officially known as “Certified Nurse Aides”, will be employed in long-term care facilities such as nursing homes, as well as hospitals and clinics. Full time Certified Nursing Assistants in Kansas make around $20,000 to $25,000 per year (according to BLS.gov) plus benefits, a salary which is below the national average and variable based upon experience. However, the low cost of living in the state means that it is possible to live comfortably as a Certified Nurse Aide in Kansas. With growing health care needs, Kansas is a good place to start a career in the health sector as a Certified Nursing Assistant.

Kansas CNA Training

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment oversees Certified Nursing Assistant training in the state, which consists of a minimum of 90 hours, split between the classroom and hands-on clinical training. Training courses are generally affordable and it is often possible to have training reimbursed. The Department of Health and Environment provides a form, stating that if the nurse aide finds employment at the beginning, during, or within twelve months of graduating from a course, the facility must reimburse the student all costs.

CNA License in Kansas

There are over 20 sites for CNA testing at community colleges, technical schools, and universities in Kansas. Licenses are issued by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment at the successful completion of a Certified Nurse Aide course and passing score on the concurrent test. The license must then be renewed every two years.
