What are the Delaware Nurse Aide Registry requirements for CNA certification renewal? Nurse aide certification renewal in Delaware is required every 24 months. Every certified nursing assistant looking to renew their certification needs to show proof of performing a minimum of 64 hours of nurse aide services for every two years. If you did not work as a CNA for the required number of hours every twenty four months then you must retake and pass the nurse aide competency test in order to obtain certification. The Delaware Nurse Aide Registry does not require a fee for nurse aide certification renewal. It is your responsibility as a nurse aide to report name or address changes to the Delaware Nurse Aide Registry and keep your listed status active on the registry list. A nurse aide who is certified in a state other than Delaware but wishes to work in the state of Delaware needs to apply for certification by reciprocity. If you are a nursing assistant looking for employment in Delaware and need to apply for certification, then contact the Delaware Nurse Aide Registry.

Should you know about your state's nursing assistant registry? Absolutely. A state's nurse aide registry serves important functions for any certified nursing assistant as well as for those looking to become certified. An individual who has finished a nursing assistant training program and has passed the state competency exam becomes listed on the CNA registry. Employers check the registry listings to confirm that a potential employee satisfies the training and testing requirements to obtain a nursing assistant job. To work as a certified nursing assistant, your status on the CNA registry must be active, without any charges of resident abuse, neglect, or misappropriation. It is important to update your name and address on the registry. By doing so, your information is current and you are able to receive important documents sent by the registry.
For example, renewal forms are mailed to the address you have provided to the registry. You will not receive the certification renewal forms unless your address on the registry is accurate. One of the most frequent questions we get is how to get a copy of a CNA certificate. The nurse aide registry is in charge of issuing a duplicate of your nurse aide certificate and to obtain a copy you need to contact them. A nursing assistant certificate is typically reprinted when the original has been lost, accidentally destroyed, stolen, or when the individual has changed their name. The nurse aide registry is also the entity in charge of revoking a nursing assistant's certification in cases of neglect, abuse, or misappropriation of a client's property. In such cases, an individual's name is permanently listed on the registry along with the specific findings.

Is it possible to enroll in a CNA class without a high school diploma or GED?

There are no federal regulations stating that individuals are required to have a high school diploma prior to attending nurse aide classes but some states such as Florida require a high school diploma or its equivalent prior to testing if you are under 18 years old and have not attended a training program. A program coordinator at the school or nursing facility which is offering CNA training classes may tell you if a high school diploma or equivalent (GED) is required in order to enroll in the nurse aide program. Some facilities do not require a diploma as long as you have completed a 10th grade high school education. In the state of Texas a high school diploma or a GED is not necessary in order to attend and complete a nursing assistant program.
