According to both federal and state law, in order for a person to work as a CNA he or she must be listed in the Nurse Aide Registry. This registry contains all the nurse aides who were able to comply with all the training and testing requirements. Employers will only hire applicants whose names are on the NAR. Part of the NAR is the Abuse Registry. Nurse aides who are listed there have records of patient abuse, neglect, property theft, and other malicious acts. A nurse aide who is listed on the Abuse Registry will no longer be allowed to work in a Medicaid nursing facility throughout the United States.

young-college-student-girlsIf you have never been certified as a nurse aide before, the only way for you to be listed is to challenge the certification exam. Before you do that, you must first gain the knowledge and skills needed to pass the certification exam. To do this, you must complete a state-approved training program. To be eligible to apply for the exams, you should only enroll in a program that is approved by the Department of Health.

By completing an approved program, you can proceed to the next step and apply for the exams. RNs and LPNs who wish to work as a nurse aide may also apply for the exam. If they get certified as a nurse aide and is employed as one, they will only be allowed to perform nursing skills that fall under the scope of being a nurse aide.

The certification exam consists of a written (oral) exam and a practical skill test. Both of the exams are given on the same day so please plan accordingly. The exams are currently handled by D&S DT. If you wish to know more about the exams, you can download a copy of the candidate handbook by visiting their site at

To get into the NAR and receive your certification, you must pass all the tests within 3 attempts. A failed test means a failed certification exam. To retake the test you failed, you will have to reapply and pay for the exam fees again.

If you pass all the tests, D&S DT will pass your results to the Registry so that it can be entered. The Registry will then issue your certification. A CNA certification in this state is valid for 2 years and must be renewed before it expires. To be eligible for renewal, you will have to work in a certified nursing facility for one 8-hour shift. For questions regarding Registry status, please contact the Nurse Aide Registry at (615) 532-51741.
