The Rhode Island Nursing Assistant Registry allows users to access information about nursing assistants in the state. The registry was created as a part of the state’s compliance with federal and state regulations requiring each and every state to maintain their own CNA registry. The registry also allows for easy access to information which is important not just for nurse aides themselves but for employers and the public in general, to know the persons who are certified by the state to be able to provide the best services as nursing assistants.

RI Online License Verification Search
The registry’s website provides useful information as to other CNA services as well such as certification renewal and reciprocity programs which are offered by the state. Through the website, anybody can have access to the online renewal if they are currently certified by the state and it helps cut down the time that they need in order to process their certification renewals. They will only need to download a renewal form and then they can send it to the registry together with the required documents which will show their continuous employment as nursing assistant to a particular long-term care facility or private employer.
The CNA lookup at the search page is also very easy to do. You will only need to enter the applicant’s name, last name, and certification number or social security number in order to get a list of potential candidates. You will be able to see their work background as well as any record of abuse, neglect, or misappropriation of property that may have been committed by the employee and the disciplinary actions which may have been taken by the state against such violations. You can easily look them up once you find the nursing assistant that you are looking for.
For certified nursing assistants themselves, they can also change any personal information that they may like to change such as their name or address by creating an account on the website. They may then make any name change by submitting an application online together with the legal documents to support such a name change. This helps make it easier for workers to create those changes without having to personally visit the registry’s office which may take a lot of time. All of these can be done through the online Rhode Island Nursing Assistant Registry which is available for free to the public.
You can also find useful information with regards to certification through the website. You will be able to find useful links such as those concerned with health care education and test information. You will find other helpful resources such as links to health care organizations and groups which support the nurse aides in Rhode Island as well as any programs that you can take in order to help further your certifications. You can visit this page if you are not yet certified and want additional information about the current RI nurse aide certification requirements. If you are applying for reciprocity, you can also find a downloadable form at the registry website which you can just print and fill-out with the necessary information in order to apply for the reciprocity.
