How do I check if my certification is still valid?

asked in License by Heather B.
I haven't worked as a CNA for over a year now, I was wondering if my certification is still valid. I do believe there is a website which will verify my CNA status. Would you happen to know that site? Also can I just volunteer to keep my license valid, instead of working for pay? I am licensed in Illinois.

Your Illinois CNA certification expires if you do not work at all as a nurse aide (for pay) for a period of 24 consecutive months. To keep your certification active, you have to work for pay, and not as a volunteer. You may check the status of your certification here: Health Care Worker Registry.
