You will need to complete the steps listed below to be considered for transfer of your certification. It will also be necessary to send a copy of your nursing assistant certification and your social security card. In addition, you will need to provide documentation to prove you have worked as a nursing assistant (or providing nursing related skills) for a minimum of 8 hours in the last two years.
The steps are as follows:
1. Check with the nursing aide registry where you are currently certified to make certain your certification is not only in good standing but is still active.
2. Obtain a copy of your Nursing Assistant Certificate from your former state to submit to the state of Missouri. If your current active dates or employment dates are not tracked on your state’s registry, you must submit proof of employment within the last 2 years.
3. Send a copy of your social security card.
4. Write a letter to the Health Education Unit in Missouri. Request the right to challenge the CNA exam since you are already listed as an active CNA in another state. Make sure to include your return address and daytime telephone number.
