  • you will have to take the required coursed before hand and they will probably have you take the GED test before hand if there is no record of you graduating

  • I am a CNA and at least here in NY you need a high school diploma or GED to take the course. You may have to take a GED course if you cannot get the records of your high school diploma

  • I agree with the PPs. If you can not provide proof of your high school diploma, you will be required to obtain a GED before your LNA course.

  • Even if your school office and their records burned down, you SHOULD be able to obtain a copy via the central registration office in the Phillipines.  Maybe this form will help?!

  • I think they might make you take an entrance exam and they will probably want to see if it's true that your school burned down before they let you take any college courses. But good luck I hope they let you in!
