Does anyone know if SC will accept a NC CNA? Do you need to re-test in SC, or just pay a fee? Or take an entire new course?
The SC board website is NOT at all helpful.
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give me.

I actually finally tracked down the right website today!! It is not under their BON, but their Dept. of health and human services.
They actually do have an application for certification by reciprocity, it is no fee, and you can't be expired in your current state.
thanks for this info! i had been searching (but not too hard!) for this info as well as i plan on going to nursing school in sc...thanks again!
I got reciprocity from Georgia. But once you get reciprocity, you might be able to get enrolled into the CNA-LPN or CNA-RN route at TTC. You would get in almost a yr earlier. Plus, if you work at one of the area hospitals, they have a program that would get you into the program sooner.
The South Carolina Board of Nursing does not regulate the certification of Certified Nursing Assistants. However, the following phone numbers may be of assistance to you in obtaining information regarding Certified Nursing Assistants:
