If you are a nurse aide in another state and want to work in Nebraska, you must be active on the Nebraska Nurse Aide Registry before
you are eligible to work in a certified nursing facility. Nebraska requires a minimum 75-hour nurse aide training, passing scores on
written and clinical exams, and nurse aide employment in the last 24 months (if you have not tested in the last 24 months.) All aides
coming into Nebraska from another state must also have Nebraska’s one-hour in-service on reporting abuse and neglect. If your first
Nebraska employer will not give you this in-service, it can be obtained at some of the community colleges or on-line. We process
applications in order received and it can take up to 30 days to process your application after receipt. If your application is not complete,
we will send you a deficiency letter. If your application is complete, we will issue your registration (license) number and place
you on the website where employers can find you. We do not issue licensure cards for Nurse Aides and we do not send you
any notification that we have issued your registration number. You can print your registration information from the website
which is updated every day about 8:00 am. You can pull up your record by entering just your first and last names. The website
address is Click on “Accessing the Nurse Aide Registry.”
Please print clearly. If you are unsure of your answer, please give as much information as you can and put a question mark after your
answer. Please attach a copy of your licensure card if you have one and a copy of your training document if your training cannot be
verified with the Nurse Aide Registry in the state where you had your training.
