Announcement (Effective February 24th, 2023)
If you successfully complete both the Written (or Oral) Examination and the Skills Evaluation, you will receive a notice of passing from Credentia. Credentia will forward your name to the Maryland Board of Nursing for placement on the Maryland Geriatric Nursing Assistant Registry. If you have already been certified as a nursing assistant (CNA) in Maryland, your geriatric nursing assistant (GNA) registration will be entered on the Registry. The Board of Nursing will not send a new Certificate. Please allow at least 21 business days for this process to be completed. If you are not certified by the Maryland Board of Nursing as a nursing assistant, you may not work and you must contact the Board of Nursing immediately at (410) 585-2044.
