The Indiana State Department of Health is responsible for maintaining the Nurse Aide and Home Health Aide Registry. The registry lists the names of certified nurse aides who meet both state and federal requirements to work in Indiana. Nursing assistants working in a licensed nursing home, home health agency, or hospice need to be listed on the registry. Prior to hiring a nurse aide, an employer must contact the registry to verify that a potential employee has received certification, and to confirm that there are no negative findings or charges against the aide.
