STNA Test Overview

Every state administers a CNA certification exam which consists of a written/knowledge test and a skills evaluation. Most states work with a third party test administrator to manage the examination process.

The three largest CNA exam providers are:

  1. NNAAP
  2. Prometric
  3. Headmaster (HDmaster)

Ohio’s STNA testing program uses HDMaster.

The Headmaster CNA exam consists of two components:

  1. Written Exam: 79 Multiple-Choice Questions. 90 Minute Time Limit.
  2. Skills Exam: Demonstration of 5 Skills to an Evaluator.

Becoming a STNA in Ohio

Benefits of Using a STNA Practice Exam

The best way to prepare for your STNA test is by taking our sample tests. Our practice questions don’t require payment or registration – they are completely free.

After you answer the questions on your quiz, your answers will be immediately graded and your score report will contain detailed explanations for all of your wrong answers.

Here are the benefits of using sample STNA test questions:

  • Remember Important Information – When you take sample tests you don’t just measure what you already know…you reinforce the learning and make it more likely that you will be able to retrieve the information later.
  • Targeted Study Time – Using practice tests as a study guide is a very effective prep strategy. One of the biggest advantages to taking sample tests is learning what you are good at and what you are weak at. You can then concentrate your study time on your weakest areas.
  • Familiarity With the Test Format – The STNA exam, like most standardized tests, has its own unique format (way of presenting the questions). As you take more and more sample tests, you will begin to see a pattern in the way the questions are written. Once the actual test day comes, you will feel comfortable and have no surprises.
