    They check all states. (though it may depend on the facility. When I started as a CNA....they did a full 7 year backround check. I had moved from GA and I remember seeing everything on it (even speeding tickets!)

    this is not something we here at allnurses.com can answer. every state has its own regulations and it's against the terms of service for anyone at the site to give what amounts to legal advice. encourage your friend to contact whatever department handles cna certification (cna's are not licensed) in her state and ask them directly.

    i hope you friend can find the answers she is looking for.
