In theory, yes you can take a state CNA exam without taking classes. However, it is dependent on which state you are situated in as to whether you will be allowed to take the exam without taking any classes first.

One state that does allow you to take the CNA exam without prior classes is Florida. You are allowed to challenge the test without having to attend proper classes, although a quick online refresher course is recommended and you can find more information on it at www.prometric.com/NurseAide/FL.html

The class costs around $40 dollars and will help make sure you are ready for the test. Florida State expresses that while a state-approved training program is not required prior to
testing, it is strongly recommended. Individuals must be at least 18-years-old, or have a high school diploma or equivalent to "challengeā€ the exam without
completion of an approved training program.

The part of the test that most people dread is the practical part. Most people are very nervous, due to the fact that someone will be watching their every move. Keep in mind that the State examiner has done this countless times. He or she will know you are likely to be nervous and will take that into consideration, to some extent.

I have completed a clinical last semester but am having difficulty finding out who to speak to about getting certified without taking the classes. Do you know who I should contact?

No, because you have to do an internship as a CNA.  If you are renewing your CNA certification and it has not lapsed then yes if not then no.
