Check Nursing Aide Registry to Confirm Your Certification Status

The department of health in each state regulates nursing aide training programs and the nursing aide certification exam process. Once a nursing aide becomes certified, their name will be added to the registry list. Most states require certificate renewals every 2 years to maintain C.N.A. status.

The current status of a nursing aide’s certification, along with any administrative findings of abuse, neglect or misappropriations of property is maintained on the health care worker registry.

Check the C.N.A. Registry in your state to:

  • Confirm your C.N.A. status is active
  • Confirm you have no negative findings
  • Find out about transferring your certification to another state
