CNA (Nurse Aide) Certification and Training
Temporary Nurse Aide Waivers end June 7, 2022.
Dear Mississippi Registered Nurses:
COVID-19 has negatively impacted the number of direct care workers, specifically certified nurse aides (CNA), across the state of Mississippi. The Department of Health Services is working closely with Credentia, our CNA testing provider, to increase opportunities for Mississippi nurse aide candidates to become certified.
Registered Nurses are key to the CNA certification process, functioning as Evaluators for the NNAAP Skills exam. We are asking you to consider becoming an invaluable asset to building your nursing community through the administration of certification testing for nurse aides in Mississippi with the opportunity to earn extra income. Evaluators are needed in most areas, so please use the link below to contact Credentia to see whether your area has evaluator openings, if your availability aligns with the current need, and how you can help.

Once your application is received, additional information regarding the position and the requirements will be sent to you by your state’s Program Coordinator at Credentia Services.
