The Nurse Aide Registry
All the names of individuals who passed the NNAAP exam are entered into the Nurse Aide Registry. One can only remain as a certified nurse aide if one’s name is on the Registry. To keep it there you’ll have to renew your certification every 2 years.
You’ll need to work as a paid nurse aide while under the supervision of a registered nurse to qualify for renewal. No one can continue working with an expired certification. At this time the minimum requirement for renewal is having worked at least 8 hours within the previous 2 year period.
The Pearson Vue company handles all customer service inquiries and questions about the Wisconsin Nurse Aide Registry and can be reached toll free through this phone number:(877) 329-8760.
