Can I renew my CNA license without working in California?

Take a competency evaluation test if you did not work. If your state offers this option, you are eligible if your license has not been expired for more than two years. The board will reactivate your license after you pass the evaluation.

What happens if my CNA license expires in California?

For those with California CNA certification that has expired in the past two years, they can complete an application for renewal. If the expiration is beyond two years, the California CNA must complete a 75-hour training and evaluation program approved by the state. Those with revoked certificates cannot renew.

Can you become a nurse with a felony in California?

How do I keep my CNA license active in Texas?
