CNA License in Michigan

CNA License in Michigan

Would you like to be part of a healthcare team that is devoted to helping the sick, disabled and/or injured with everyday tasks in Michigan? Do you need a job that is flexible and offers a comfortable salary? If you answered yes to both the questions, a career as a CNA may be a perfect fit for you! You can even complete your training in just a few short weeks!

Certification Requirements in Michigan

In Michigan, the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs oversees the training and certification of CNAs. In accordance with the rules set by the Department, all prospective nurse aides must complete a state-approved CNA program. After completing the program, graduates are required to apply to take the two-part competency evaluation examination for CNAs. Achieving an acceptable score on both parts of this test is necessary for certification in Michigan.

How to Get Your CNA Certification in Michigan

Prometric handles the testing of aspiring nurse aides in Michigan. When you obtain acceptable scores on both sections of the CNA competency exam, Prometric mails you a certificate. While there is a small fee for the competency exam, there are no applications or fees necessary for obtaining your certification.

How to Verify Your CNA Certification in Michigan

The Michigan CNA Registry is maintained by Prometric. To verify your status as a CNA in Michigan, go to https://registry.prometric.com/publicMI. The link will take you to the Michigan specific registry. To conduct a search, you must either have an “employer code” or the “certificate #” or specific “first name” and “last name” of the nurse aide to conduct a search.

How to Renew Your CNA Certification in Michigan

Nurse aide certifications in Michigan are valid for two years. You must then renew yours. Prior to your renewal date, Prometric will mail you a renewal packet. To renew your certification, you must provide all of the required documents in your packet and mail them back to Prometric.

How to Reinstate Your CNA Certification in Michigan

In Michigan, if you do not work as a CNA for eight hours or more during any two-year period, your CNA status will become inactive. At this point, you will need to reinstate your certification. To do this, you must retake both parts of the Prometric CNA competency examination.

How to Transfer Your CNA Certification from Michigan to Another State

The first step involved in transferring your CNA certification from Michigan to another state is to contact the other state's CNA regulatory agency. You can easily locate the appropriate agency by using the handy search tool offered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. While most states simply require CNA certification verification to transfer, some also require state testing, continuing education courses and/or additional training.
