According to the law, any individual who wants to have a career as a nursing assistant must take the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program Examination. The examination is composed of two parts, a written (or oral) exam and a demonstration of the basic nursing skills. The two exams will be done on the same date. In order to gain entry into the Mississippi Nursing Assistant Registry, the applicant must be able to pass both tests.
The written examination is composed of 70 multiple-choice questions. The 10 of those are pre-test questions and are not included in the total score. An oral examination is given to those who have difficulty in reading English. This exam is composed of 60 items of multiple-choice questions and 10 additional items of reading comprehension. To take an Oral exam instead of a written one, the applicant will need to request for one during the application.
After taking the written/oral exam, the skills evaluation is next. In this part, the applicant will be asked to perform five randomly selected nursing skills that were taught in the training program. Every applicant will be given a maximum of 25 minutes to perform all the skills in front of a nursing assistant evaluator. Pearson Vue conducts the testing and can be called about any questions you have or to setup a test date by calling 1-888-204-6213.
Those who have previously been certified in the state and had their license lapse or those who are currently certified in another state may be able to qualify for reciprocity. This process allows qualified applicants avoid retaking the training requirement and go directly to the testing phase. To apply one will need to submit an application, a $26 reciprocity fee and a $101 testing fee. The stipulation is that applicants are only allowed one chance to pass both of the tow parts of the exams. Those who fail either portion will be required to re-enroll in a school course.
