asked in License by Amanda
I have already taken a CNA course back in August 2006 and I worked in a doctor's office for two years and a half. I quit working in 2009. I have not used my CNA certification since then. I know that I have to take a retest but I was wondering could I take it online if not, do you know the name or number to where I can go to retest to activate my CNA again. I live in Fremont, North Carolina and I took my CNA course at Johnston Community College in Smithfield, North Carolina. Thank you for helping me.

To return to active status as a nursing assistant on the North Carolina CNA registry you must retake the nurse aide exam. You may not challenge the state test online, but only at one of the state-approved testing locations. The state contractor for administering the nursing assistant examination in North Carolina is Pearson Vue. First you need to print and complete an application for challenging the test. The form can be found here: Application for Registration by Competency Examination. Make sure you complete the entire form and submit copies of the required documents. For the eligibility route in your application I believe the last choice applies to you ("North Carolina Nurse Aide I Registry Candidates"). You may also schedule the exam at one of these available testing locations: Regional Test Sites.
