It is mandatory for every state to have a CNA Registry as per the federal mandate passed in 1991. After finishing the courses, the applicant is obliged to take the certified nursing assistant Certification Test, established and approved by the Registry. If the student passes the exams, he obtains a nursing assistant License from the Nursing Aide Registry. The nursing aide Registry is used by the employers to verify the nurse aide’s status. The employer verifies if the aide is eligible to work in a health care facility and if the nursing assistant has the required training and examination. As a result, the nursing assistant is obliged to maintain an active status at the certified nursing assistant Registry and to continually update his personal information and activity.
The CNA Registry is responsible for the training and evaluation programs and for recording the details of the people qualified as Certified Nursing Assistants.
