The creation of Georgia Nurse Aide Registry as well as the design of a nurse aide training and competency program started in 1990 after the Federal Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA) passed as legislation. The primary mission of this federal law was to improve patient's quality of care. By setting training and testing standards for all CNA classes in Georgia, the law ensured that all those holding the title of certified nursing assistant met the minimum competencies for assisting nurses in providing care to residents.
State-approved nurse aide courses in Georgia comply with OBRA regulation by training students for a minimum of eighty-five (85) hours. Classroom and clinical instruction are conducted and supervised in nursing homes, hospitals, private schools, high schools and technical colleges throughout the state. To maintain employment eligibility, a certified nurse aide must renew her CNA certification biennially, and complete twelve (12) hours of in-service education each year. Every Medicare or Medicaid licensed nursing home and long-term care facility in Georgia provides in-service education hours to certified nurse assistants.

I am a CNA and I work in Tallahassee, Florida. I have been a CNA for about two years. I need to renew my CNA certification for Georgia, which has expired. Please help, I am trying to get a job in Georgia. What should I do?

A certified nursing assistant in Georgia must renew her certification every two years. To renew your certification you need to fill out and submit a renewal application. The CNA renewal application verifies that you provided a minimum of eight (8) hours of nurse aide related services for pay in the two years since your last renewal. I am not sure if the state of Georgia considers your work as a CNA in Florida acceptable for renewal of your certification. You need to call the Georgia nurse aide registry and explain your situation. The registry may be contacted at (678) 527-3010 or (800) 414-4358. If your work as a CNA in another state counts toward recertification requirements in Georgia, then you may request a CNA renewal application, complete and submit the forms, and become re-certified in Georgia. On the other hand, if the registry does not count your employment in Florida as valid for renewal of your CNA certification in Georgia, then your only option to re-certify is by retaking the Georgia nurse aide competency examination.
I am a CNA in Georgia and I have recently got married. I need to change my last name on my nursing assistant certification card. How do I go about getting this done?
Can a North Carolina CNA license be transferred to Georgia?
I worked as a CNA for years but my certification exipred and I was certified in Georgia but now I live in Virginia. What do I need to do to be able to work as a CNA in Virginia?
Can I work as a CNA in Georgia if I am a Critical Care Tech?
I worked at a nursing home after I completed the CNA class and got my CNA certificate in 1994 or 1995. Will this allow me to challenge the CNA test now?
