welcome to allnurses.com!
CNA's in GA have a FOUR month grace period in which they can work without being certified. after the four months expires, you have to have been certified.
please see the GA Nurse Aide Registry's website as proof of this.
JUST CLICK HERE!
you can also call 678-527-3010 or 1-800-414-4358. even if you show your "certification card", your employer still must verify that you are on the registry. Go ahead and start your job search and best of luck to you.

this is the link to a portal with more links to the georgia nurse aide registry. check out the link at the top right to the frequently asked questions for the nurse aide training program. if you took a paper an pencil test along with a practical clinical exam it may take (and i'm speaking in generalities) up to 6 weeks for the state office to get your name onto their computer lists. i recommend that you call the state office and find out how long you have to wait if it is that critical for you to know. i'm surprised they didn't give you this information at the test site. the contact phone numbers they give for questions about the nurse aide training program are: (678) 527-3010 (local) or (800) 414-4358. i hope congratulations are in order for you!
