Can I renew my expired CNA license without taking the exam?

asked in License by anonymous
I have been working as a CNA for many years, but didn't renew my CNA certification the last time it was due. Do I have to retake the exam, or do I just need the form completed that notes I have been working as a CNA for the last 24 months? My current position doesn't require a CNA license, but I would like to continue to be classified as a CNA.

The answer to your question depends on your state and how long ago you were supposed to renew your certification. Some states allow you to simply submit the renewal form late, others require you to also pay a late fee, while some may require you to retake the exam. The longer you wait the less likely it is that you will be able to renew without retaking the exam. You should contact your state registry prior to submitting the renewal form. You can find contact information for all state registries by using the menus on most pages of this website.
