    I'm not 100% sure about this but I have a friend who let her license lapse and it had been over a year since they expired. All she did was call the licensure place and they told her all she would have to do it retake the test, not the entire course. I would give them a call and find out your options.

    For a newbie- how does one get a cna license?

    Check with your local community college to see if they offer classes. Also nursing homes sometimes hire people and give the classes in the facility to certify them. Try calling a few and check!
