NURSE AIDE REGISTRY RENEWAL FORM INSTRUCTIONS
Federal and state regulations require that you performed nursing or nursing-related services for pay, under the supervision of an RN or LPN, in the past twenty-four (24) months. The Nurse Aide Registry Renewal Form is used to report your nurse aide employment history in order to maintain your eligibility to work in certain federally certified facilities. Failure to re- port your most recent date of employment to the Registry will affect your employment eligibility. The personal informa- tion will be used only to correctly identify and update your Registry records.
Allow two (2) weeks for processing your completed form. To verify the processing status of your Renewal form, you may check your status on the Wisconsin Nurse Aide Registry website at http://www.pearsonvue.com or call the Wisconsin Nurse Aide Registry at (877) 329-8760.
If you are on active military duty when your certification expires, or if you are the civilian spouse of a service member on active military duty when your certification expires and are unable to practice under your nurse aide certification during your spouse’s active military duty, you may be eligible for an extension of your certification for 180 days after the date of discharge from active duty and to renew your certification to the next biennium without completing the required re-testing. For information on how to renew your certification, please contact the Office of Caregiver Quality at (608) 261-8319 or DHSCaregiverIntake@wi.gov.
