As far as I know, you are allowed to but in order to be eligible for continued enrollment on the registry, you are required to work as a nurse aide at least one documented day (8 consecutive hours) for pay in an approved facility such as a nursing home, personal care home, hospital, home health setting or intermediate care facility during the previous 24 months. Self-employment, private-duty, or employment in doctors’ offices are not acceptable forms of work experience for continued enrollment.
