It seems that you are eligible to apply for testing because:

  1. You are a student nurse. You must have been approved to test by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and you must enclose a copy of that authorization to test letter with your application. You may contact the Pennsylvania Department of Education at 717-772-0814.
  2. Your Pennsylvania nurse aide registration has lapsed because you have not worked providing nursing-related services for at least 24 consecutive months. In this case you have only one opportunity to successfully pass the NNAAP examination. If the examination is failed, you must complete nurse aide training again and reapply for the exam.

You can get started by creating an account with the Pennsylvania Nurse Aide Testing Credential Management System. You may get additional help by contacting the Pennsylvania Nurse Aide Registry at 800-852-0518.
