Looking online wanted to know where there is a LIST of states that have CNA reciprocity if you earned your certification from NJ??? I'm looking at ARIZONA, CALIFORNIA, TEXAS, NEVADA, AND WASHINGTON STATE ONLY.

Reciprocity usually means that you can work in that state with your existing license. I don't think any state has reciprocity for CNA. Only the NCLEX is reciprocated between states for nursing licenses. Most states permit you to endorse your certification if your education meets the minimum standards.

Here's the application for CA CNA

And to endorse to AZ:

Texas:

Nevada: http://nevadanursingboard.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/CNA-application-packet.pdf

And Washington:

I'm surprised some states call it reciprocity others endorsement. Now I know

I read that you can transfer over your CNA license from one state to another by paying for the fees to do so, but it depends which states allow which states...some require a total do over.

All the states listed have an endorsement process which basically as long as you are currently certified and working as a CNA you can get a second state CNA cert. I'm pretty sure only one state licenses nursing assistants and that is New Hampshire so they are LNAs in NH.

Nearly all the CNA endorsement/reciprocity applications require proof of working as a CNA in the past 2 years (unless certified less than 2 years), clean background and payment of fees and you get your next state CNA qualification.
