Each state has a Nurse Aide Registry so you will need to contact yours; you should have received a renewal within three months of your license expiring. If your certification has lapsed there are some things that you can do to get it renewed.

You may be able to renew online but each state has different regulations when it comes to the length of time that the license has expired so you will need to check the last valid license that you have. If you haven’t got your original certificate you could contact your employers to get a copy. If you are unsure of any part of the process, you can call your state registry.

If there has not been a 24 consecutive month lapse in your employment as a CNA, you will simply need to complete a license renewal form and pay the re-certification fee. To qualify, all you need to have done is a minimum of eight hours of qualified work within those two years. State registries can confirm how long you have worked within this period.

If you have not worked at all as a CNA within the last two years then you will need to retake the certified nursing assistant training program. If this is the situation that you find yourself in and you are reluctant to start over, some states will allow you to challenge the necessity of this. It will mean that you have to meet particular criteria, set by the state, and will mean that you do not have to take the entire course again, but will be allowed to simply sit the final exam. This course of action suits some people but others prefer to brush up their skills so that they can return to the job with confidence.

Check with your state registry and see if you can re-test without taking the full CNA course. If they say you can, then take a refresher class to brush up on the CNA skills for the exam. Good Luck!

If you click here you will find a list of state CNA registries. You can call or fax the Georgia registry and ask them what you need to do to get your license transferred.
