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 is currently preparing to resume 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 requirement for all test takers to bring and wear a face mask for the duration of the testing event. You will be prohibited from testing if you don’t have a mask.
