- 0Mar 23, '13 by jeaniekadineeI will be doing a CNA program in North Carolina for the summer but I'm going to possibly move to New Mexico. My question is if I get my certification in NC do any of you know what I'll have to do in New Mexico to keep my certificate? I'm sorry if this doesn't explain much. Also, do any of you know what the estimate pay for a CNA is..... especially in Alamogordo, NM? Thank you all for your time.
