Upon successful completion of both tests an applicant is issued a certificate by Prometric that allows them to work as a certified nurse aide (CNA) for two years. At the end of each cycle a renewal notice is sent to the individual. If the renewal form, documentation of employment as a nurse aide for at least eight hours in the certification cycle and renewal fee are returned to Prometric, a new certificate is issued for two years from the last date of verified employment. EXAMPLE: Current certificate validity period is 4/30/09 to 4/30/11. Your last day of employment, as a CNA, was 9/14/10. The new certification document would be valid from 9/14/10 to 9/14/12 NOT 4/30/11 to 4/30/13. The renewal date begins with your last day of employment verified to Prometric. If the renewal form is not returned or is incomplete the certificate expires and the individual cannot work as a nurse aide in a long term care facility.
