Requirements for the Documentation of Continuous Learning Hours
Each learning activity listed on the form MUST INCLUDE THE COMPETENCY NUMBER (based on the COHN(C) list of competencies).
This list of competencies is found on the CNA website:
Scroll down and Select "Blueprint and Competencies” under "Occupational Health Nursing” and then scroll down to page 9
Link directly and scroll down to page 9
Print this list and retain it for your information to ensure any continuous learning you undertake is assigned a competency number.
Example of assigning a competency number:
You take an Audiometry course and have to assign a competency number. On page 12 of the competencies document you find Audiometry listed as # 3.2.3.c.This is the competency number you will enter on your certification or re-certification form.
It is a good idea to assign the competency number when you take the course, rather than wait until you are certifying/re-certifying. Keep your records up-to-date to avoid last minute stress.
