To work as a nurse aide in South Carolina, you will have to get your name entered on the Nurse Aide Registry. If you have never been certified as a nurse aide before, then your only option is to challenge the evaluation test.
The state’s Department of Health and Human Services has authorized Pearson VUE to develop, score, and report the results of the exam. Pearson VUE will be working in cooperation with the NACES in the administration of the exams. The evaluation exam consists of a multiple-choice knowledge test, which if offered in written and oral form, and a clinical skills evaluation.
To get into the NAR, you will need to pass both parts of the evaluation exam. You will only be given a maximum of three attempts to pass all the tests. If you fail, you will have to reapply for the exam and retake the part that you failed in. If you fail after the third attempt, you will no longer be allowed to apply unless you undergo retraining.

To apply for the exams, you must first become eligible. There are different ways to become eligible to apply, but the best one is to complete a state-approved training program. These 100-hour programs consist of classroom lectures and a minimum of 40 clinical hours. Even as a student, you will already get the change to handle patients as a nurse aide. While still under training, you will not be allowed to perform any procedures that have not yet been taught in your class or perform without the supervision of your CNA instructor.
