    Best thing to do would be to contact the state agency of the state you're moving to.

    hi, cfmp11!

    this is not as difficult as you might think it will be. go to the thread on this forum entitled "complete list of cna registries" (or, here is the link for you http://allnurses.com/forums/f265/com...es-171787.html ) and click on the link complete list of cna registries there. it will take you to a web page that lists all the state registries, contact information and has links to their webpages. it sounds like you're going to texas, so i would go to the texas registry site and see what kind of information they have on their site about transferring your certification. if the information is not listed there, then call the texas registry. their phone number will be given somewhere in that information. transferring your certification from state to state is not much different than it is for rn and lpns who transfer their licenses from state to state. best wishes. post a message back on this thread and let others know how this process went for you so others know how it works. have a safe move.

    hello,

    assuming that you are planning to move to texas (as per your example), i am providing a link here for you to click on. this will tell you exactly what you need to do in order to "transfer" your certification to texas. this is called "reciprocity" by the way!

    it also states that it will take 2-3 wks depending on how long it takes for you and your former employer to get the forms back to them. you must also have a texas address in order to receive your certification from them, otherwise, it will be "inactive" until you provide a texas address.

    just click here!

    good luck,
    jay

    I moved to Tx from another state and really just needed proof of certification and was given an job. So I would just check with the employer where you're wanting to work.

    hey i was recently looking into this and this is the best place to go because it lays it out easy for you. also it gives you the registry for the entire usa so that you know what numbers to call. national network of career nursing assistantsthe first step is to contact the nurse aide registry in your home state and request a "application for enrollment by reciprocity". ...

    its actually really easy. i moved from ohio to oklahoma and had my license transeferred. all i did was call national network of nursing assistants, and told them i needed it transferred. they mailed me a "reciprocity" form, i filled it out, sent it back, and two weeks later got my new oklahoma license in the mail. easy as pie!
