You will need to join an approved nursing assistant certification training program that offers you at least 75 hours of instruction, and pass the license exams to be placed on the state registry. The classes will teach you the fundamental nursing skills you will need while on the job. After you have completed a program you will be able to apply for the comprehensive exams. These exams are in two parts which are a written and a manual skills test. Upon finishing your exams you will be notified if successful and be added to the state registry for 24 months. If you do not work with 2 years you will be removed from the state registry and may have to retake the examinations.
Nurse aides that come from other states are still welcome to work in Nebraska by applying for reciprocity. This option is only available for those who are already a nursing assistant in a different state and want to transfer to Nebraska. When they apply, their licenses should still be valid. They will be required to provide a copy of their certification and their social security card. They must also have a good relationship with the state they come from. To do this, one must complete the Interstate Application Form, which can be downloaded at http://nevadanursingboard.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/CNA-application-packet.pdf. There will also be a required one hour of additional training.
Applicants will also be checked whether or not they are qualified to work as a nursing assistant in the state. A person can only be disqualified to work if:
1. His or Her license is lapsed because of unemployment for the last 24 consecutive months.
2. They have a record in the Registry that involves moral turpitude of a nurse aide.
3. A substantial allegation of abuse, neglect, or misuse of a resident’s property.
