Renewal requirements for certified nurse's aides vary by state, but the procedure for renewing or becoming certified is generally very similar, reports Chron.com. State nursing boards or health departments are usually in charge of how often nurse's aides must renew their certifications. Most states allow nurse's aides to apply for a renewal as long as they do so within a 24-month window from their previous certification. Outside of that window, nurse's aides have to complete testing to regain their certification. Other states do not require renewals for nurse's aide certification at all.
Some common requirements for nurse's aide certification renewals are listed on Chron.com. Common requirements include completing in-service hours, which are usually between 24 and 48 hours per certificate renewal period; filling out an affidavit of eligibility and any applicable applications, such as certificate renewal forms; and paying any required certification fees, such as the fees that are usually required when a nurse's aide first becomes licensed and every renewal period thereafter.Learn more about Health Insurance
