Can I Transfer My CNA License to North Dakota?

If you are a certified nursing assistant from another state and have just moved to North Dakota you can apply to the Nursing Aide Registry in North Dakota for what is called “reciprocity”. As long as you can provide verification that you completed a state approved CNA certification program, are currently certified in another state, and have worked as a CNA recently. You would not need to take the North Dakota exam or training if you are granted reciprocity. CNA licenses usually need to be renewed every two years.
