If you want to become a nursing assistant, then the first thing that you need to do is to enroll in a CNA course. Training that was done in a different state will not make you eligible to take the Mississippi license exams. The training course has to be approved by the state where you are planning to take the exams in.
If you have completed your training in a different state, you can take the exams there and apply for reciprocity later on. Reciprocity is the process by which a nursing assistant that is currently registered to a different state’s NAR is transferred and given authorization to work in a different state. When you apply, you must have a good relationship with your state and an active license. Having records of negligence and abuse will make you unable to work as a nursing assistant in Mississippi.
A nursing assistant whose license has been revoked because of neglect or abuse may still get it back. The individual will have to undergo retesting on all the tests of the NNAAP. The individual must pass all the tests for his renewal to be considered. When applying, the individual will have to give his certification/license number and the date the certification/license was revoked.
To learn more about scheduling a test date or for other questions call Pearson Vue at 1-888-204-6213. If you have specific questions regarding certification requirements in the state you can contact the Mississippi State Department of Health at 601-364-1100.
