About the Exam
To become a nurse aide in the state of Connecticut, you'll need to complete the Connecticut Nurse Aide Registry Application and pass Prometric's Clinical Skills and Written examinations. There are several eligibility routes based on educational requirements and work experience, so be sure to check the most appropriate route for your situation.
The Written examination consists of 60 multiple-choice questions that must be answered in 90 minutes. You have the option of taking the Written examination in an oral format; however, you must request this option on your application. The Clinical Skills test will have you complete five nursing-related skills, such as indirect care and hand washing. The time allotment for this exam ranges between 31 and 40 minutes. If you pass both exams, you'll be added to the Connecticut CNA registry and receive a CNA certificate.
