QUESTIONS ABOUT STATE REQUIREMENTS?
As of October 6th, the waiver that allowed the temporary nurse aide was discontinued by CMS on a national level. However, since then, some states have been successful in getting the waiver, for their state only, extended. These are state specific waivers that are allowing extra time to get TNAs transitioned to CNAs. It is not the same as using the time to bring on new TNAs. This is a transition window period where TNAs are supposed to be transitioning to CNAs.
Contact your state nurse aide registry for additional information about your state’s requirements. This Directory of Nurse Aide Registries provides contact information by state.
