According to federal regulations, direct care staff employed in a Medicaid certified nursing facility must be listed on the State's Nurse Aide Registry as a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA). The primary purpose of the certification program is to ensure that only those nurse aides who have demonstrated competency based upon standardized training and testing are employed.
