The Utah CNA Registry is responsible for providing certification, certification renewal, as well as reciprocity services for Utah Certified Nursing Assistants. All nursing assistant training programs and instructors are approved and overseen by UNAR. Furthermore, UNAR has designated Testmaster Universe (TMU) as the software program to maintain the registry records and provide certification testing.

Initial Nursing Assistant Certification in the State of Utah

To become a CNA for the first time in Utah, you must complete a state-approved training program which is a 100-hour training course, including 24 hours of clinical training within a long-term care facility. Upon completing such a program, you must pass both the knowledge and skills exams delivered by TMU at specific sites. Once you pass the examination, your name will be added to the UNAR. TMU assigns a personal portal to individuals who have completed a state-approved training program. You are given access to the portal via a username and password. The portal is to be used to access all renewal documents and maintain contact info current.

Nursing Assistant Certificates are valid for 2 years in the state of Utah. To be eligible for certification renewal, you must complete 200 hours of paid nursing services under the direction of a licensed nurse within the previous certification period.
