How to Check on a Revoked CNA License


To find out the status of a CNA (Certified Nurse Assistant) license or registration, visit the online registry database for the state or states in which a CNA practiced. The registry may also provide you with detailed information about the cause of a revocation, as well as additional disciplinary actions taken against a CNA.

Things You'll Need

  • CNA's full name
  • CNA's license or registry number

Find the online CNA registry database for the state or states in which the CNA held a license. CNA registry databases are often maintained by a state's nursing board, professional licensing department or department of human services. If you are unsure of the state in which a CNA was licensed, you may need to search several state databases to locate the CNA's registration. If you have a job application or resume from the CNA, begin your search by visiting the databases in the states where the CNA previously held employment.

Enter the requested information into the search fields. This information may include the CNA's registration number, full name or address details.

View the information online. You may also be able to view or even download information about the reasons for a revocation, as well as what a CNA can do to regain her license or registration.

Call the CNA registration board if you don't have the information needed to perform a database search. Its employees may be able to assist you.

Tips & Warnings

  • Not all states license CNAs, although they do register CNAs that meet the federal training and exam requirements for working in a nursing home.
  • Some states maintain a separate abuse registry, which may provide additional details about a CNA's registration or licensing status.
  • A CNA may be licensed or registered in more than one state, and each state maintains its own CNA registry. When performing a background check on a CNA, you would need to look up her status in all fifty states for a complete picture of her licensing or registration history.
