In order to remain on the registry and to be eligible to work in a licensed facility, you must meet the requirements for re-certification. Federal regulations require that you must have worked as a CNA for pay, a minimum of eight hours within the last 24 consecutive months under the supervision of a Registered Nurse. If you are unable to meet this requirement, you must retest to remain on the Georgia Nurse Aide Registry. If your certification expires three or more years from date of last re-certification date, then you must take another state approved nurse aide training program. You should verify this information by contacting the Georgia Nurse Aide Registry at 678-527-3010 or 800-414-4358.
