CNA Training Binghamton

Binghamton, New York is located south of Syracuse near the Pennsylvania border. CNAs in New York generally earn between $30,000 and $40,000 per year making it one of the state with the highest pay scale for this field.

New York uses Prometric to maintain its registry and handle testing. Information can be found on Prometric’s website at www.prometric.com/NurseAide/NY. The certification exam is comprised of two parts:

  • Clinical Skills Exam which is an untimed exam with scoring on five skills

  • Written Exam consisting of 60 multiple-choice questions to be completed in less than two hours – this exam is also offered orally for those with a reading disability, marginal reading skills or who do not speak English as their first language.

Both parts of the exam must be passed within two years of the date your training program was completed. You will need to recertify every two years.

New York requires a criminal history record check including fingerprint submission. Certain felony convictions will disqualify applicants.

Further north in Syracuse is SUNY Syracuse EOC.

New York requires a minimum of 100 hours of training even though the federal mandate is just 75 hours.

Often the best way to get into this field is to check with hospitals, nursing homes, and other medical facilities to see if they have a program either for training or for reimbursing you. CNA classes Binghamton locations may be difficult to find but it is worth the time and energy to locate one or even temporarily move to another area to get your training.
