Take the CNA Test in Westerly

Starting May 7, 2024 nursing aide students will be able to take their certification exams at Westerly Education Center. The addition of this test site helps make the certification process more accessible for individuals who want to stay local.

The National Nurse Aide Assessment Program (NNAAP) certified nurse aide exam will be administered twice a month – on the first and last Monday of each month. The Rhode Island Department of Health provides access to the exam and study materials and manages the registration process.
