If you are planning on becoming a nursing aide in Colorado, it is wise to know first if you qualify to become one. By determining the eligibility route that applies to you, you will know what next steps that you must take in order to apply for the NNAAP Examinations. If you have not undergone proper nurse aide training, then you must enroll in a state-approved CNA course and finish the required training.
For those who are already working as a nurse aide but without a license, they will only have at max 4 months to take the license exams. Every applicant must take the exams within 24 months from the submission of their applications to Pearson VUE. If they fail to take it within that time frame, their application will expire and they would have to send the necessary paperwork again. If you have any problems like knowing the scores for your exams or you would like to reschedule your NNAAP Examination, you can call Pearson VUE at (888) 274-5050.
