Since there are two different types of nursing assistants in New Jersey, there are also two different CNA training programs that you can choose from. These are NATCEP and PCA. NATCEP is for those who wish to work in long-term health care institution, while PCA is for those who want to be in home care. The type of program you enrolled in will also determine the type of license exams that you are going to apply for.
A CNA certification is a requirement to work in the state of New Jersey as a nursing assistant. According to the law, all those who want to work in either a long-term healthcare center or a sub-acute unit must have a valid license/certificate. Those that work in an acute care unit may not necessarily be certified. The certification process for this state consists of passing the background checks for criminal records, completing a state-approved training program, and passing the competency examinations which are given by PSI through various testing centers.
The nursing assistant certification last only for 24 consecutive months. It must be renewed before it expires if you want to continue your eligibility to work as a CNA. Since PSI maintains the New Jersey NA Registry, their renewal mailer will send you a notification around 45 days before the expiration of your license/certificate. The renewal process requires the following:
• Having a valid license/certificate
• Being able to provide proof of having worked for a minimum of 7 hours as a paid nursing assistant in a healthcare facility or an agency that is approved by the Department of Health.
• Being able to pass the criminal background check with fingerprinting.
• License/certificate must not have been revoked or suspended.
If you have any additional questions about the renewal process, you can call the PSI Customer service at 1-877-774-4243 from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM EST.
You will also need to contact the CBI unit at (609) 292-4303 to schedule for your CBI. Since you are only renewing your license, there is no need to apply for the CBI again. The notice for the update on your criminal background check records will usually come before your license/certificate renewal notice. In the renewal process, there will no longer be any fingerprinting. The CBI Unit will just inform PSI once you are cleared.
