In order to become a nursing assistant, one can either apply directly to the NAR through reciprocity or take the competency evaluation exams. These exams are made in order to see if the nursing assistant candidate is capable in both knowledge and skills in taking care of the patients. To help with the exams, the New York State Department of Health has contracted Prometric to help in the development, administration, scoring, and the releasing of the results.

A nursing assistant training facility that wishes to administer the exams will need to apply for in-facility testing. They will need to fill out the application form ( and get approval before they are allowed to administer the exams. Other candidates, such as those who are not currently employed in a nursing home or is employed in one that is not allowed to give in-facility testing, may take the exams in Regional testing centers.

If the nursing assistant candidate is not able to take the exams on the scheduled date, the nursing homes and training programs must inform Prometric no less than 5 business days.  All payments made for or by the candidate will be forfeited if no proper notice was given. Those who missed an exam because of tardiness will no longer be allowed to enter into the ongoing examination and the payments will also be forfeited.
