CNA Additional Information

Please be sure and read this information for a more complete understanding of the application process!
  • Review the complete State of Alaska nursing statutes, regulations and application information.
  • A criminal background check, authorized by the student, is required PRIOR to course registration.
    • If you have a criminal history record, the background check officials making a determination of your suitability for the employment, license, or other benefit will provide you the opportunity to complete or challenge the accuracy of the information in the record.  If you are going to need to challenge a background check because of a past criminal history, please be sure to start the background check early so there is a reasonable amount of time to complete the paperwork before classes begin. 
    • A criminal background history of substance abuse does not automatically keep a person from being licensed as a CNA.
    • An outstanding payment of child support or a default student loan could result in being issued a non-renewable temporary CNA license.
    • Students who are unsure if they qualify for entry should meet with an advisor.
  • Please note that clinical sites may require drug testing for all employees, trainees and volunteers. Testing positive for drugs will disqualify students from participating in clinicals and thus will be unable to complete the HCA A105 CNA class and will not be eligible to take the state CNA certification exam. It is the students responsibility to confirm that they are eligible before attending the course. No refunds will be given to those who don’t comply with this policy.
  • As per the Alaska Department of Community and Economic Development, after an individual completes the Board of Nursing approved nurse aide training program and submits a CNA application and fees, the application is evaluated by the Board of Nursing staff.
