Free CNA Practice Test Online

We have 2 Online CNA practice tests to help you build some confidence in answering the questions and to assess yourself on how well you are prepared for the exam. Please scroll to the bottom if you would like to jump straight to the tests.

The Nurse Aide Assessment Exam consists of 2 parts, the written portion and the skills portion. In order for a student to successfully pass and start working as a CNA, they will have to pass both parts of the exam. In this article we will try and help you ace the written portion through tips and techniques that might help you before and during the exam session.

The final exam will consist of 60 – 70 multiple choice questions which will test you on everything that you have studied. The number of questions and the time allotted will depend on which state you are offering your exam. Always make sure that you are at least 30 minutes early to the exam center and don’t forget to take a valid/current ID card (this can be a state issues ID card, passport or a driver’s license).

Before the Exam:

Here are a few handy pointers to help you plan and better prepare yourself for the final test.

  1. Skim through your notes before you start studying to give you an idea of the time allocation you will require for each chapter.
  2. Plan your study time appropriately to allow time for work and commitments.
  3. Create short notes where appropriate.
  4. The best exam preparation is by doing past papers. Always do this in exam conditions where by you sit in a quiet room and time yourself while doing the questions to familiarize yourself with the format and how you handle exam pressure.
  5. Go to bed early the night before the exam so as to keep yourself fresh for the big day!

The Day of the Exam:

  1. Make sure you have all your required stationary; it is recommended to take an extra pen and pencil just in case.
  2. Double check your venue and the timing of the exam, the last thing you want is to be late or worse end up at the wrong exam centre.
  3. Don’t discuss anything related to the exam with friends once you’re at the exam centre, This sometimes leads to stressing about something you might have missed out and risk it affecting your overall performance in the exam.
  4. It is best to avoid a heavy breakfast.
  5. If you’re a person with a small bladder, we would recommend you go to the washroom before the exam starts – This will help you avoid going to the washroom in the middle of the exam.

During the Exam:

  1. It is important to maintain a cool head throughout the exam.
  2. Make sure you have all your required stationary; it is recommended to take an extra pen and pencil just in case.
  3. Read each question thoroughly before you attempt it.
  4. Time management is crucial and you should avoid wasting too much time on 1 question. If you finish the exam early, you should always skim through the answers again to double check your work.
  5. Never rush into the answer without reading the full question, sometimes the question maybe asking something different from what you would otherwise think.
  6. Don’t leave any questions unanswered. If you do not know the answer move ahead and comeback to the question later on and make sure you answer it. Since its multiple choice questions 1 out of 4 is the right answer and you would be better off taking a chance with an answer rather than leaving it blank.

    Out of all 60 questions, I missed 8 in total. All of these questions are things that I learned when I was working for a CBRF a few years ago. I am currently going to school online to get my Associates Degree in Medical Specialties, and I’m thinking of becoming a CNA so this practice test was very helpful.
