Ohio STNA Test

The purpose of Ohio’s State Tested Nurse Aide (STNA) program is to improve the training of Nurse Aides and to ensure high standards of care in long-term healthcare facilities. In many other states the certification is known as Certified Nursing Assistant, or CNA.

The first step to get your certification is to attend STNA classes. These STNA classes are required to include at least 59 hours of classroom training and 16 hours of clinical training. Once you have completed your course, you will then be ready to take your test.

There are two sections of the Ohio STNA test. The written section of the test consists of 79 multiple choice questions that must be completed within 90 minutes. A warning is provided when there are only 15 minutes left. To pass the written test you will need a score of 80% or better. Here is a breakdown that shows the topics and the number of questions for each topic:

  • Safety – 10
  • Infection – 7
  • Personal Care – 7
  • Mental Health – 4
  • Care Impaired – 6
  • Resident Rights – 7
  • Communication – 7
  • Data Collection – 4
  • Basic Nursing Skills – 11
  • Role and Responsibility – 8
  • Disease Process – 4
  • Older Adult Growth – 4

The second section is the STNA skills test, in which you must perform 4 nursing assistant skills from a list of 25 skills. To pass this skills test you need to score at least 80% while not missing any of the “key steps.” If you do fail one of the skills, then you will be required to take another skills test where you must perform 5 skills including the one that you missed. For help with this portion of the test be sure to review the Skills Test Checklist.

If you have had good STNA training, you will have no problem passing your test. Be sure to use our directory to find the classes in your city that will fit your schedule. Good luck with your new career!
