CNA Certification Program

“Certification really gives that extra knowledge that makes a difference in your nursing care.”

What is certification?

CNA certification is a nationally recognized nursing specialty credential for nurses. The CNA Certification Program consists of 22 nursing practice specialties.

Care to Be the Best

The first certification exam, offered in 1991, was in neuroscience nursing. Today, more than 15,000 nurses are CNA certified.

Certified nurses are…

  • Recognized nationally for their practice excellence and commitment to lifelong learning
  • Valued by employers, because their certification demonstrates specialized knowledge and brings many benefits to organizations
  • Viewed as having enhanced professional credibility

To become certified, you must pass a rigorous computer-based exam. There are two exam windows annually. Your exam preparation will be unique, depending on what you already know in your specialty. We offer many exam preparation resources, as do many nursing specialty associations.

If you become certified, your credential will be valid for a five-year term. At the end of five years, you can renew by submitting a record of continuous learning hours or rewriting the exam.

New requirements to make certification more accessible

We want certification to be more accessible to nurses while maintaining our established high quality and credibility. We’ve heard from you that the CNA Certification Program must evolve to match changes in nursing curriculums and practice. That’s why the eligibility specialty experience hours required for nurses to apply for certification will be reduced. There are two options:

  1. 1,950 hours of experience in your nursing specialty within the last five years (formerly 3,900 hours).
  2. 1,000 hours of experience in your nursing specialty within the last five years plus 300 hours of formal education, which can be a specialty post-basic course or program at a college/university (as opposed to the former 2,925 hours of specialty experience plus education).

Significant savings on the fees for the CNA Certification Program (more than $150 for nurses who are part of CNA), For more details, see https://www.cna-aiic.ca/en/certification. More funding also available from MORNA for CNA Certification / Renewal if you are a ORNAC/MORNA member - see details at MORNA CNA Funding
