In order to be certified on the Connecticut Nurse Aide Registry, an individual must have completed an approved nurse aide training program, and sit for the state competency examination within 24 months from completion of the class.
A student enrolled in a LPN or RN program may request to challenge the examination by providing original transcripts of their education verifying they have completed the basic nursing fundamentals and skills that are covered in a nurse aide training program.
An individual who is currently listed as active with no derogatory or abuse information on another states’ list of certified individuals can apply to have their name added to Connecticut’s Registry.
The certification period is for 24 months, and the individual must recertify every 2 years.
All applications and supporting documents must be submitted to directly to Prometric.
