Although the requirements for becoming a nursing aide differ from one state to another, there will always be the required competency examinations that you must take in order to work as a nursing aide long-term. By passing the state exams, you will gain entry into the state’s Nurse Aide Registry and will then be given your STNA license.
Another way of getting into the state’s NAR is to apply for reciprocity. Reciprocity is given to nursing aides who are currently registered in a different state-registry and wishes to transfer and work in Ohio. STNAs or CNAs from Ohio may also transfer to a different state if the state offers reciprocity. When applying for this state, the applicant must provide a government-issued ID, his complete name, address, contact number, SS card, and the states that he is registered as a nursing aide.
It is not enough to get your name on the Registry to work as a nursing aide. Your status must also say that you are active. Your status as a state-tested nursing aide will remain active for 2 years from your initial certification. To maintain your eligibility to work as a nursing aide, you must renew your license before it expires. One of the requirements is that you must be able to provide proof that you were able to work for 7 ½ consecutive hours or 8 cumulative hours as a paid nursing aide. Even if your license has lapsed, you may still renew it if you provide the Registry proof of your employment.
To avoid any problems with your recertification, you must also keep your record on the Registry updated. If you changed your name, address, or employer, you must also inform the Registry. If you wish to have a copy of your license with your new name, you will have to request for one by contacting D&S Diversified Technologies at (877) 851-2355.
