Nurse Assistant Competency Examination
After careful consideration, the Red Cross has decided to permanently close its Nurse Assistant Competency Evaluation Program. The last day of testing in New Hampshire is August 31, 2021. In California, Massachusetts and Vermont, the last day of testing is October 31, 2021. The Red Cross is committed to supporting students, training providers and testing sites affected by this decision.
The closure does not affect the Red Cross Nurse Assistant Training Program.
