How to Renew a CNA License in Connecticut

by Beth Winston ; Updated July 27, 2017
CNAs in Connecticut perform basic patient-care duties under the supervision of a Registered Nurse.

If you're a Certified Nurse Aide, or CNA, in Connecticut, your license is valid for two years from the time it was issued. If you wish to renew your license in Connecticut, the state’s Department of Public Health provides a straightforward route to recertification.

Step 1

Ensure you meet the work requirements. To recertify without having to retake the CNA examination, you must have worked at least one eight-hour shift in paid employment every two years since your license was first issued.

Step 2

Download the Employment Verification Form from the Connecticut Department of Public Health website (see Resources). The department provides three different forms, depending on what type of agency employs you and whether you've been employed out of state, so be sure to select the one that’s applicable to your situation.

Step 3

Complete the form and get it signed by your employer, who certifies that you've met the work requirements.

Step 4

Return the form to the Nurse Aide Registry in Hartford. You can either mail it to the address provided on the bottom of the form or fax it to 860-509-8457.
