Certified Nursing Assistant Test Prep Course (CNA)

This continuing education course is composed of lectures and training skills that students will perform during the 3-day course. This is a test preparation course intended for students to “challenge” the CNA exam.  This exam preparation course is not affiliated with any certifying boards. 

Is the FAU CNA course board certified?

The FAU CNA course is a test preparation course intended for students to “challenge” the CNA exam.  The exam preparation course is not affiliated with any certifying boards.  The instructors are Nurses and are approved through the Florida Board of Nursing to teach a variety of certification courses.

Does the tuition include the cost of the state license exam?

No. Students must sign up through Prometric Testing Centers and pay them directly before, during or after the prep course.  Prometric Centers are located nearby and you will go to their facility to test. 

Background check: is that something I have to pay before I take the course or is it needed prior to taking the State exam?

The background check will have to be done prior to signing up for the Prometric exam.
