If you want to become a certified nursing assistant in the state of Maryland you will need to get your certificate by attending an approved training course. The program you choose should offer at least 100 hours of instruction and practical experience. After completing the program, you can then submit an application to take a certification exam. In addition you will need to obtain and submit the Criminal History Record Check, and pay the $20 certification fee. After you receive your license it is valid up to two years. It will need to be renewed every two years for you to remain eligible to work at a cost of $40.00. Call 410-585-1990 to speak with a representative of the Maryland Board of Nursing to learn more.
Getting a nurse aide license is only a basic certification. There are also other advance certifications that you can add to the one you have. For example, if you wish to work in a licensed comprehensive care facility, then you must get a Geriatric Nursing Assistant certification. In order to be one, you must first apply for the GNA registry, which is also maintained by the Maryland Board of Nursing. There will also be an exam that you must pass in order to be on the registry. The tests are conducted by the Susquehanna Red Cross. They will be the ones who will inform the Boar who passed the exams. It will be the BON that will provide the certificates and not the testing site. Like CNA licenses, a GNA license in the state will expire every two years. The expiration date will be on the 28th day of the holder’s birth month. There will be no fees when you renew your license.
