Study Groups

Study groups are established by individuals and organizations and are independent of the CNA Certification Program. As such, they operate without being endorsed by or being of benefit to CNA, which simply provides study group information. The language of each study group corresponds with its description.

Although not every study group is open to all nurses applying to write certification exams, nurses who wish to join a group are encouraged to see whether participation (full or partial) is available. Even if a group is not nearby, for example, it may be possible to share in their activities via teleconferencing. Being part of a certification exam study group can be tremendously helpful to your exam preparation and experience. Please contact each group organizer for complete details.
