The Division of Health Care Quality is responsible for the training and testing program for CNAs and for the CNA Registry.
To work as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) in a nursing home in the State of Delaware, either as facility staff or as contract/agency staff, individuals must meet the CNA requirements given in the State of Delaware law and regulations. The requirements include taking required training in an approved program and passing a test.
Individuals who are shown to be competent are placed on the CNA Registry. The certification as a CNA must be renewed every 24 months. Skilled nursing facilities and nursing facilities (intermediate care facilities) can only hire CNAs who are on Delaware’s CNA Registry, in good standing.
