Licensing

CNA License Reciprocity 

 

When you are ready to become a traveling Certified Nursing Assistant, there are a few steps you can take to shorten the process and get started. One of those steps is to get certified in the states you are interested in going to. It is a good idea to get a few extra states as well in case the states you are interested in don’t have any openings. Unfortunately, CNAs don’t have a compact license so you must apply individually for each state. Below you will find information on the different states.
