About the Exam
The Washington Pearson CNA test is intended for nursing candidates who would like nursing assistant certification in the state of Washington. There are two parts to the test, the written examination and the skills examination. Both portions of this test are administered on the same day, and must both be passed in order to be certified. For the written exam, students may choose a written test, consisting of 70 multiple-choice questions, or an oral examination for those with difficulty reading English. The oral examination is offered in both English and Spanish and consists of 60 multiple-choice questions and 10 multiple-choice reading comprehension questions that must be answered in English. For the skills examination, you will have 25 minutes to complete five randomly selected nursing assistant skills successfully.
