As stated in AFL 20-35, under Expired Certification - A CNA whose certification expired within the previous 2 years, or whose certification will expire during the state of emergency, may work as a CNA for the duration of the declared emergency without renewal. The status will display “TEMP” on the L&C Verification List Page and “EMPLOYABLE DURING STATE OF EMERGENCY” on the L&C Verification Detail Page. Notice: The temporary waiver will expire on 02/28/2023. Expired certificate holders will no longer display on the online Registry after 03/01/2023.

The Nursing Home Administrator (NHA) information displays active/inactive licensed NHA's and the expiration date. Licensed active NHA's are currently employed in the industry. Licensed inactive NHA's are not employed as NHA's but maintain a current license. If you have a concern about the accuracy of the list or would like further information regarding NHA's, please click here to send an e-mail to Nursing Home Administrator Program.

As of September 2010, query options for CNA, HHA and CHT have been updated to allow search by "last name starting with". Please note, when using this search option results may appear in large volume. In order to narrow the query results, we recommend search by "certificate/license number" or "last name, first name". (No query changes to NHA).
