The State Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) exam is administered by D&S Diversified Technologies on behalf of the state of Ohio to certify nurse aides. Potential nurse aides must schedule, pay for and pass the STNA exam. This exam consists of a written and oral exam and a skills test which enables you to be placed on the state's nurse registry and make you eligible to work in the state. In order to schedule your STNA exam, you must fill out and send in some specific paperwork.
