    Hi there--

    I have a similar situation.. I completed my CNA training in CA and will be moving to Vegas next month. I would like to know how to transfer my certification from CA to Vegas, I do know that I need to work first before I can be able to apply for reciprocity to another state, which I have. I just want to know what the next step is?

    Hoping to get a response soon.
    Thank you in advanced!
