For most individuals interested in becoming certified to work as a nursing assistant they will want to enroll in a course that teaches the basics of health care and prepares them for the license exams. These courses are available throughout the state and should always be approved by the state registry. Failing to enroll in an approved course can mean that it is not accepted by the state and would prevent you from scheduling a test date. You can ensure a course is accepted by calling the Mississippi State Department of Health at 601-364-1100. Programs will teach at least 130 hours of instruction and generally take around 6 weeks to complete depending on the class you choose. Once you finish you become eligible to schedule a date for the exams.
Taking the NNAAP license exams is one of the ways to work as a nursing assistant in Mississippi. The other option is by applying for reciprocity, which is only available to those that are already a CNA that is currently registered in a different state or have failed to renew their license in MS. The process of reciprocity will allow them to transfer state and give them authorization to work in a long-term care facility.
Before one is able to take the exams, one has to apply for it. One of the requirements is to be able to show proof that one has completed a nursing assistant training program that is approved by the state of Mississippi. One also has to complete an application form that can be requested from the training program, the NACES, or by downloading it from the Pearson Vue website. Along with those mentioned, the applicant will also need to send a money order as payment for the testing fees.
For any problems and need of assistance in completing the application, please call the NACES Customer Service at (800) 579-3321. The representatives there are ready and willing to help by answering any questions or clarifications.
Once the NACES receives the application, they will then send the Authorization to Test Notice within 48 hours. This Authorization to Test is a yellow postcard that will contain important information about the tests. If one has not received this within 10 working days, immediately contact the NACES at (800) 579-3321.
