If work requirements are not met for listing renewal, candidates must complete testing prior to their registry expiration date. Candidates must submit training waiver requests to NC DHHS. You may only apply for testing no more than 45 days prior to your registry expiration date. Once approved, you must complete testing before your listing expires on the registry. Candidates have three attempts to pass both portions of the examination in order to be placed on the North Carolina Nurse Aide I Registry. Failure to do so will require training at a North Carolina state-approved training program and retesting of both portions of the examination. You should contact the N.C. Nurse Aide I Registry at 919-855-3969 for additional guidance.
