Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Information

Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Clinical Nurse Leader master's option students are eligible to apply for a CNA license after successful completion of their first semester.

The Board of Nursing (BON) has created a modified PDF application for nursing students. Please be advised that the online application through the BON website is for CNA training programs only, not students in nursing programs.

Application instructions are outlined in the 'Steps to Complete Your CNA Application' document linked below. Please read this document in its entirety. If you have questions about the process, don’t hesitate to reach out to your academic advisor.

Note: The BON is experiencing extreme delays right now. The estimated processing time is about 6 - 10 weeks, but could potentially take longer. In order to ensure that your application is processed with no issues, please verify that you have completed all highlighted sections and attached the required documents before submitting.
