Read school reviews below.You will need to complete a process if you want to transfer your nursing assistant certification to Nevada from another state. There are steps you can follow in order to be eligible to work as a CNA in Nevada rather than needing to complete another nursing assistant training course and certification exam. You can apply with the Nevada Board of Nursing for a CNA certificate by endorsement.
It is possible to print the application for CNA certificate by endorsement on the official website for the Board of Nursing in Nevada. You will need to complete all your personal details and then take or send the endorsement form to the Nurse Aide Registry in the state where you currently hold a license. There are some states that will charge a fee to complete the endorsement of CNA certificate application. This fee will need to be submitted with your application. The board of nursing in your state will then submit the completed application to the Nurse Aide Registry in Nevada. Most nursing assistants who are first starting out in Carson City (and other areas of Nevada) will earn about $23,000 per year. The maximum rate of pay for the majority of CNAs in Nevada is about $28,000 per year.
