Nursing Assistant FAQ

• I already took the test 3 times, and I need to take an accredited program, can I take yours?
Yes you can! Our nursing assistant program is approved by the Florida Board of Nursing!

• What is the difference between CNA and HHA?
A certified nursing assistant (CNA) and a Home Health Aide (HHA) have similar roles in patient’s lives as they both provide personal care. As a CNA, since you take the state exam, you are verified to know the regulations and procedures that are up to date with Florida Requirements. This allows you to work in Hospitals and other government associations.

• I have a CNA license from another state, what can I do?
It depends on the state, since each state has different requirements. The states that are transferable to and from Florida are Arkansas, Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Michigan, New Mexico, New York, and Oklahoma.

• Where can I work as an CNA?
You will have a wide range of work places as a certified nursing assistant. You can work for Hospitals, home care agencies, nursing homes, retirement homes, hospice centers, have private cases and many more!

• My license is about to expire, what do I need to do?
You can check the requirements and pay the renewal fee of $55 to the Florida Board of Nursing

• My license already expired. What can I do?
If it expired less than 30 days ago you can still renew it! The renewal fee in this case would be $105. If it’s been expired for more than 30 days but less than 120 you can renew it for a fee of $160. If it has been more than that please contact the Florida Board of Nursing
