Certified nursing assistant exam candidates should practice for the licensing exam as many times as needed until they are comfortable with the material. The number of times exam candidates practice depends on how well they grasped the material presented in the CNA course.
CNA licensing exam candidates can use materials provided by the licensing exam's testing provider, Pearson Vue, to study for the written and clinical skills portions of the exam. The company offers exam candidates testing materials specific to their states, including a downloadable testing handbook. Exam candidates can ask friends and family to play the roles of patients to practice for the clinical skills portion of the CNA licensing exam.
