  • Nurse Aide Registry (NAR) does not mail certification cards, but you can print your verification of certification on our website here: Verify a Nurse Aide is on the Registry. Per regulation, facilities are able to verify your certification at the same website.
  • To renew your certification, you must have worked at least eight (8) hours during the two (2) year timeframe of your certification. If you do not have this documentation, you may use at least eight (8) hours of work proof worked up to two (2) years after your expiration date.
  • If you do not have the required eight (8) hours of work proof, or your certification has expired by more than two (2) years, you must retest to obtain certification again. To apply to retest for your LTC nurse aide certification, please complete a LTC Retest Application and mail it in. Upon approval, NAR will send you an approval letter via mail. Once you have your approval letter, you can contact any career technology center to schedule your retest. You only have one chance to pass the test. If you do not pass, you must retrain for your certification. This retest application is only valid for LTC certifications.
  • Please use ODH 717 - Recertification Application and mail it in for all other types of certification renewals. These include: home health aide, LTC aide, residential care aide, developmental direct care aide, adult day care aide, feeding assistant, certified medication aide, or advanced certified medication aide.
