For you to be allowed to work as a nursing assistant in Maine, your name must be on the Nurse Aide Registry. It will only be entered there if you were able to comply with the state’s requirements such as passing the license exams. Before you are allowed to take the exams, you have to become eligible to apply by being able to graduate from a state-approved training course.
The training program must be approved by the ME Nurse Aide Registry and offer the proper amount of hourly instruction and curriculum mandated by the state. In addition to qualify for a course you must have graduated the 9th grade, be at least 16 years old, and pass a criminal background check. Currently the state requires course provide a total of 180 hours of training that includes 20 hours of lab work, 70 hours of clinical practice and 90 hours of health care theory and coursework. After the program, you can apply for the state exams for an opportunity to get your license.
The license exams for Maine are composed of two parts, a written and a skills evaluation. If you want to get your name on the Registry, you will need to pass both parts. Only those names that are on the Registry will be allowed to work for more than 4 months as a CNA. Nurses from other states are also welcome to directly apply for the exams if they wish to become a nursing assistant. Since the training is very much the same, they may apply directly without the need to undergo any retraining. This rule also applies to nurses from other countries.
