The Nurse Aide Registry contains all the names of individuals who have successfully met federal and state training and testing requirements. According to the law, only those individuals, who are on the list, are allowed to work in a Medicaid/Medicare health care facility.
If you had never been certified as a nursing aide before, then the only way for you to get into the Nurse Aide Registry is to pass the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program Examination or NNAAP exam. This exam consists of a multiple-choice knowledge test and a skills evaluation exam. Only candidates who pass both tests will be entered into the NAR. All candidates who wish to take the NNAAP exam must successfully complete a state-approved training course.
The good news is that there are several routes to establish eligibility for the NNAAP exam. All you have to do is to qualify through any of the following routes:
– New nursing aides.
– Nursing students.
– Graduate nurses who don’t have a license.
– Foreign-trained nurses.
– Nursing aides with lapsed certifications.
– Home health nurse aide.
– Out-of-State nursing aide student/CNA.
New Nursing Aides
These are individuals who don’t have any training whatsoever in providing nursing services to patients. In order to qualify, they will have to complete an approved CNA course. Approved courses consist of at least 120 hours of training, of which 32 are required to be allocated to clinical practice in a licensed nursing facility. During the duration of the program, students will be supervised in the clinic by a qualified CNA instructor. Students are not allowed to perform any procedure without the knowledge or presence of their instructor.
A healthcare facility is allowed to hire a person to work as a nursing aide even without a certification; provided that the facility takes responsibility of the actions of the nursing aide without a certification. Upon starting work, the individual will then have 120 days to complete a program and get certified. These nursing aide students are not allowed to perform any procedure that hasn’t been taught in the classroom.
Training and Testing Fees
A person who is already employed, or has received an offer of employment, from a Medicaid/Medicare facility prior to enrolling in a program cannot be charged for any payment. All expenses (both training and testing) must be paid for by the employer.
If you pay for your training and testing prior to employment, you will be eligible for reimbursement. To qualify, you must get employed within 12 months after getting certified. You should keep all your original receipts to get the right amount of reimbursement.
