Prometric has been actively engaged in identifying and responding to the potential health risks COVID-19 poses to our test takers, staff, and other individuals. Our responses have taken into account numerous perspectives, including governmental policies and information provided by local/global health organizations.
Prometric resumed nurse aide testing in July 2020, where allowed by local jurisdictions and as supported by available testing sites and staff. We will reschedule any impacted candidates as soon as we can, and appreciate your patience as it may take some time to get all sites operational again.
While much about testing will remain the same, Prometric is instituting new safety procedures for all Nurse Aide testing events in response to COVID-19, including special training for our staff, additional cleaning at testing sites, and a new mask requirement for all test takers. Prometric guidelines require that a candidate must bring and wear a mask (without an exhalation valve) at all times and follow the instruction of the Nurse Aide Evaluator. You will be prohibited from testing if you don’t have a mask. Please be advised that testing sites may also have their own safety guidelines. Site specific, local and state guidelines may also apply and must be followed. Site entry restrictions may vary by site and include such things as proof of COVID-19 testing (IFT sites only), temperature checking, sign in logs, etc. Candidates must also follow any site requests or restrictions to test with Prometric.
