If you want to become a nursing assistant, you must first learn the necessary skills and knowledge that will be used as when you take care of residents with different needs. To achieve this, you must enroll in a state-approved training program. These programs are offered by different institutions and take up to 13 weeks or less to complete. After you complete your training, the next step is to apply for and challenge the competency evaluation exams that are handled by Pearson Vue. Once you pass all the exams, your name will then be entered on the Registry.
Only those whose names are on the Registry are allowed to work in the state as a nursing assistant. Another way of getting on the Registry is by apply for Interstate Endorsement or reciprocity. This option is only available to those who are already in another state’s Registry and have an active status. When applying through this method, there is also a different set of requirements.
Regardless of what method you are using to get onto the Registry, you must be able to pass the background checks for criminal records. These checks will be done at both federal and state levels. It may take around 4 months before the official results may be received by the Board from the FBI. Having record such as abuse or theft may prevent you from working in the state as a nursing assistant.
