CNA Renewal FAQs

For additional information regarding the 2022 renewal, please review the FAQ’s below:

*Please do not apply for an Emergency Courtesy Certification in place of completing your CNA renewal application.

Certification of nurse aides and maintenance of the nurse aide abuse registry are responsibilities of the Board of Nursing. The Board also makes final certification decisions and takes disciplinary action against nurse aides who violate the law. The Nurse Aide Registry Program is staffed by the Division of Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing.

Alaska statutes prohibit unlicensed practice. Specifically, AS 08.68.360 states that the practice of professional or practical nursing for compensation by a person who is not licensed, or whose license is suspended, or revoked, or expired, is declared to be inimical to the public welfare and to constitute a public nuisance.

Certification Information

Applications for Certification

Applications may be held in pending status for up to a year (after a year, a new form, fingerprint card and fees may be required). Applications inactive for more than a year are considered abandoned.
