Exciting Changes coming July 1, 2015
Prometric will be introducing some exciting changes to the Nurse Aide Certification exam beginning July 1, 2015.
Candidates will now be able to take the written exam on the computer via Prometric’s Internet Based Testing (IBT) system, used to administer over 130,000 nurse aide exams annually, at Prometric approved testing locations. Paper and pencil exams will still be available at sites not equipped for IBT for an extended period of time, with a long-term goal of converting all sites to IBT.
How does IBT enhance the candidate’s testing experience?
With the introduction of IBT, Prometric has reduced the fees for the certification exam. The new fee structure is shown below:
Prometric offers two opportunities for Arkansas Certified Nurse Aide training programs interested in becoming involved in testing. Please read below to determine which option may best fit your facility. Note: existing test sites will be contacted directly by Prometric staff.
If you are interested in becoming an In-Facility Testing site – either IBT or paper/pencil - please click on this link, and a Prometric representative will reach out to you as soon as possible.
There are no immediate plans to modify either the application process for candidates or the content of the Nurse Aide Certification exams.
Stay tuned for an invite to a web demonstration of IBT that will allow you to describe the process and its benefits to your candidates prior to testing.
