? about Nursing Asst Certification

  1. Hey all....I have a question for those who have had to get their CNA prior to applying for Nursing school....

    I am working on my pre-reqs right now... and I am getting my CNA this summer as part of the requirement for applying to the program... My question is... once you have the certificate, do you continue to renew it each year...or do you just let it expire once you are in nursing school and/or get the ADN degree???

    I wasn't sure if you would need to continue it once you are an RN but I was curious...

    TIA

    No, once you have a higher license you do not need it anymore. You can probably let it expire once you're in school.
