The Certified Nurse Aide Registration Program ensures that certified nurse aides meet the qualifications for a certified nurse aide and are appropriately registered on the Aide Registry. The program administers the Aide Registry.
The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) is changing the process regarding the certificates and pocket cards that are sent to certified nurse aides (CNA), qualified medication aides (QMA) and registered home health aides (HHA). Effective May 1, 2011, when an individual renews their certification or registration, no certificate, pocket card or confirmation will be sent in the mail. To verify the status of an aide you should visit: http://mylicense.in.gov/everification . The status and expiration date of the certification / registration are shown on this page and may be printed for your records. Any request for copies of certificates or pocket cards will be directed to the website below.
CNAs, QMAs, and HHAs will receive a paper certificate and pocket card with their initial placement on the Nurse Aide Registry. This is the only certificate and pocket card that will be sent by ISDH.
If a paper certificate or pocket card is needed, it can be obtained at no cost from: https://mylicense.in.gov/.
