Examination Requirements

Florida candidates must pass both parts of the Prometric Nurse Aide Exam: skills and knowledge. The skills test involves carrying out a sampling of actual nursing assistant duties. All test takers are evaluated on hand washing technique and on indirect care behavior. Each test taker is evaluated on three additional skills; these are randomly assigned. The clinical skills test checklist details all skills that may be assigned. This is available from Prometric (https://www.prometric.com/en-us/clients/Nurseaide/Pages/FL.aspx).

  The test taker can also purchase practice tests from Prometric.

Some prospective CNAs will test at their own facilities. Others will select regional testing sites. The examination is available at more than 25 testing sites around Florida. A list is available on the ‘Florida Nurse Aide Exam’ page of the Prometric site (https://www.prometric.com/en-us/clients/Nurseaide/Pages/FL.aspx).

The candidate will receive results of both tests on the day of the examination. Approximately one week later, the Board of Nursing will receive the official results directly from Prometric.

Although candidates will initially be required to register for both assessments, those who fail one will only need to register for the one that was failed. The fee for the two required tests is $155. .

A test taker is allowed up to three attempts and up to two years. In some cases, an individual who does not meet the two-year requirement will be allowed to reapply to Prometric under an alternative pathway, E4: Other Nursing Training. An individual who fails either test three times will be ineligible unless he or she subsequently completes an approved program. Prometric notes that the approved program will be at least 120 hours.
