In order to work in the state of Nevada as a nursing assistant, one must be able to get one’s name into the state’s Nurse Aide Registry. If one is already a nursing assistant that is currently registered in another state’s Registry, one is able to apply for Interstate Endorsement if one wishes to start working in Nevada.
When applying, one must submit a completed application form, which can be downloaded from Nevada’s Board of Nursing website. Aside from that, the state will also request a valid endorsement form from all the states that one was registered. Since each state will also have its own set of requirements to complete an endorsement form, it is better to contact their Registry and ask for the requirements. This link (http://nevadanursingboard.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/CNAstatenurseaideregistrydirectory.pdf) contains all the Registries contact number.
All applicants are also required to pass both the federal and state background checks. To do this, one will need to fill out and submit a completed fingerprint card. It may take up to 4 months before the Board to receive the official results from the FBI. During that time, one may apply for a temporary license to start working in the state.
The license examination is given by Pearson Vue and then sent to the Board for verification of your requirements. Usually after successfully passing the exams the official results take two to three weeks to be received and verified by the Board. You can call them to check on the status of your certification or for further inquiries by calling toll free at (888) 590-6726. Once certified you will still be required to renew your certification every 24 months. This is completed by sending in verification of your employment and working at least 8 hours on the job as a nurse aide.
