In order to be able to work in Mississippi as a nursing aide, you must have a CNA certification. This can only be done if your name is entered on the state’s Nursing Aide Registry, which is a master list of all the nursing aides who were able to meet both the Federal and State’s testing and training regulations. One way of qualifying for the exams is to graduate from a state-certified training course. These courses only take 6 weeks to complete.
The license exams for this state are handled by Pearson Vue. They are composed of a written exam and a skills evaluation. If you are not that good in English, you may request for an oral exam when you apply. Compared to the written exams, the oral exam also has two parts. The second part is a 10-item test on the different terms that are used in the clinical area. To get your name on the Registry, you will need to pass all of them.
All candidates have rights to file a grievance to complain about the outcome of their exams. The NACES will follow-up each one within 30 working days from the receipt of the grievance letter. Grievance letters must be written by the complainant and submitted to the NACES Plus Foundation. It will then be investigated by the RN Associate Program Director.
Once the investigation is done, it will be the Program Director who will contact and inform the individual of the outcome. If the fault lies with the evaluator, the NACES, or Pearson Vue, the individual will be allowed to retake the test for free. You can talk to a representative of Pearson Vue by calling 1-888-204-6213 to set up an examination date or ask other questions related to testing requirements. If you need further clarification about certification requirements you can contact the Mississippi State Department of Health 601-364-1100.
