Once you are placed on the Nebraska nurse aide registry your status remains active for 24 months after you have stopped working as a nurse aide. If you do not provide nursing or nursing related services for monetary compensation for more that 24 months then your status on the Nebraska nurse aide registry becomes lapsed. This requirement is that a nurse aide be active only for Medicare and Medicaid certified nursing facilities. There are no inservice or continuing education requirements for maintaining an active status on the Nebraska nurse aide registry but there is a requirement for Medicare and Medicaid certified and licensed nursing facilities to provide nurse aides with 12 hours of inservice. The inservice requirement is a facility requirement and not a Nebraska nurse aide registry requirement.
