To be a nurse aide in North Carolina, you must be listed on the N.C. Nurse Aide I Registry. The only way to do that is to complete the state competency exam. Because the state does not offer reciprocity nor does it accept endorsements, CNAs from other states will also be required to take this exam.
The competency exam or the NNAAP examination consists of two parts. The first part is the knowledge test which may be taken in the written test or the oral exam. The oral exam may be taken in either English or Spanish. All of the items will be multiple-choice questions. You will be given a total of 2 hours to answer all the questions. To get an oral exam, you must notify Pearson VUE when you apply. If you are wondering if you are capable of taking the written exam, you can try the self-assessment reading test which is provided in the Nurse Aide Candidate Handbook. You can download a copy by going to www.pearsonvue.com.
The second portion of the examination is the clinical skills tests. In this part, you will be asked to perform in front of a nurse aide evaluator 5 randomly selected nursing skills. You will be placed in an area that will resemble an actual clinical setting. Before the start of this part, the evaluator will show you where the equipment is located. To pass this part, you must perform the skills satisfactorily. The evaluator will base your performance on a series of checkpoints that were developed for every procedure. The candidate handbook will also contain a list of the nursing skills that may come out of the exam.
After each exam, your sheet will be faxed by the evaluator to be scored. Normally, the results will be faxed back 10 minutes afterwards. If there are any technical problems, the sheets will have to be mailed and scored manually. You can expect the results of your exam within 1 week.
If you have any problems with the results of the exam, you have the right to file a grievance. Your grievance must be in writing providing as much detail as possible about your complaints. The NACES Plus Foundation Inc. will follow up your grievance within 30 days from their receipt of it. If an error is found, you will be allowed to retest free of charge.
