Job Opportunities

  1. 0
    I live on the border of two states. I'm on the NC CNA registry.There are a lot of job opportunities in VA for a CNA. However, if I get my license endorsed in VA what happens if I get offered a job in NC? Am I able to accept a position in either NC or VA? Will I only become a certified nurse’saide in Virginia?

    CNA's aren't licensed they are only certified hence the name CERTIFIED Nursing Assistant. Not LICENSED nurses aid. Whether being on a registry in one state is transferable to another state I have no idea.

    Thanks for clearing that up for me. I've always said I'm certified but other people say if I'm on the registry it means "licensed".You are able to transfer it. I know that for a fact.

    If you are endorsed into VA, I think you should still be able to retain your NC certification. However, the best source for the answer to your question would be the NC BON.

    You are allowed to hold active certifications in multiple states, however I believe VA does not share reciprocity with NC. I think in order to be certified in Virginia, you would have to take their state approved training and test. You can double check with the BON:
