List of State By State Nurse Aide Registries

Certified Nurse Assistants across the country must be registered within their respective state’s CNA Registry. Whether the CNA is new coming off passing their exam, or is a CNA with year of experience, their status with a registry must be kept current. This requirement is in place due to the 1987 law “The Omnibus Reconciliation Act”. As a part of this sweeping law, there were stipulations in enacted for Nursing Homes to be regulated by the federal government as well as requirements for nurse aide training.

Nurse Aide Registries are maintained on state by state basis, most can help you find your CNA license number if you are currently a CNA and you’ve managed to misplace it. CNAs must be listed in these registries to be eligible for employment in a nursing home or long term care facility within the state they are listed in. Each file includes:

The Nurse Aide’s full name
Home address
A previous record of any cases of abuse or neglect
Social security number

CNAs are responsible for keeping the listing within the registry for their personal information up to date. This includes any changes to their name in the case of a marriage, or if their home address changes. If a CNA moves states, that employer can look up the Nurse Aide in the previous state’s registry to validate their listing while they go through the process of taking a their CNA exam in that state or following the proper protocols to be certified.
