Nursing Assistant Certification
All nursing assistants must be certified in order to work. If there are any nursing assistants working in your facility who are not certified, they must immediately apply for certification.
The CNA certification is the basic level of certification. Any other certifications are in addition to the CNA certification. The CNA certification must be completed first or in conjunction with any additional certification.
The following are additional certifications that are specific to Federal law or State regulation. The additional certification will appear on the CNA certification card.
Training programs, which have not been approved by the Board of Nursing, must immediately cease and desist training candidates. The training program must submit all materials specified in the Regulations Governing Nursing Assistant Training Programs, COMAR 10.39.02. Interested parties may contact the Board at MBON.CNATrainingProgram@maryland.gov.
