To keep your Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) certificate current you are required to submit documentation of paid employment once every two years. You must perform independently at least eight (8) hours of paid nursing assistant duties every 24 months to stay on the Minnesota Nursing Assistant Registry. A lapse in employment over 24 months will result in an expired status on the Registry. Tasks must be similar to those performed in a nursing home.
Classroom Written Tests: Unit tests must each receive a minimum passing score of 80%. Each student is allowed 2 retakes per unit test. A passing retake score ranges from 80%-100% but because the test is a retake the unit test scores will be recorded at 80%. Therefore, the highest score allowed to be recorded on a retake is 80%.
Lab: Lab testing consists of critical and non-critical step skills. Passing scores of lab skills range from 80%-100%. In addition, all bolded steps require completion to pass skills assessments at a satisfactory level.
Test Out: The facility may be required to reimburse the nursing assistant for the cost of NATO (Nursing Assistant Test Out) and up to two retakes. If after three attempts a student does not pass, the student must retake the nursing assistant course.
