Completing a CNA training program is a necessary step in being a CNA in any state of the U.S., especially in North Carolina. While some states may allow their nursing aide students to start working while still in training, the only way you can work in this state as a nursing aide without a license is by completing a N.C. training program. Those who complete N.C. CNA program graduates are given a maximum of 4 months to work while waiting for their scheduled exam date.
North Carolina is a “challenge” state for nursing aides that come from other states. This means that for them to get on the N.C. NAR I is by passing the competency exam. The state’s Department of Health and Human Service has contracted Pearson VUE to help conduct, score, and release the results of the exam. If have any problems regarding the competency exam, you may call a customer service representative at (888) 204-6207. You can also go to their official website to download a copy of the Nurse Aide Candidate Handbook.
This handbook contains important information on how to become a certified nursing aide in the state of North Carolina. It also contains important information regarding the exam, application forms, how to process the online registration, sample tests, and some references to give you some ideas on what to expect on both the knowledge exam and the skills exam.
The NNAAP examination consists of a written/oral test and a clinical skills test. To get your name on the registry, you are required to pass all the tests. Every candidate is given 3 attempts within 2 years from the completion of their training to pass all the tests. During retakes, the candidate is only required to retake the part that they failed.
Retraining and re-examination is a requirement for those who failed after three attempts or exceeded the given 2 years, and those who failed to renew their certification because they were unable to work as a nursing aide for at least 8 hours every 24 months.
Before an employer hires a nursing aide applicant, he/she is required to check the validity of the applicant’s certification. The employer can check by simply going online (https://www.ncnar.org/verify_listings1.jsp) and provide the required information. Individuals who wish to check their own record may also go to the link provided.
