The provided table helps in determining if this program fulfills the educational requirements for licensure in the specific states, provinces, or territories listed. In the "Does This Program Meet State Educational Requirements?" column, each state's status is indicated as either “Meets State Educational Requirements,” “Does Not Meet State Educational Requirements,” or "Does Not License.”  Each entry in the table is tailored to the particular state corresponding to that row.

It is essential to understand that meeting the program's educational criteria might not be the sole requirement for licensure. Additional prerequisites might include being listed on a registry, passing background checks, or satisfying certain physical standards. Therefore, students should consult the relevant agency to ascertain the full spectrum of requirements beyond educational accomplishments.

Nurse Aide II requirements vary by state and other individual factors; credentials, training, and job experience. It's important to note that not all states have reciprocity agreements or requirements. Each state has its own Nurse Aide Registry which is responsible for establishing the nurse aide training and competency evaluation programs as well as keeping a record of all individuals who are qualified to work as a certified nurse aide in a specific state. If you are moving to another state without a reciprocity agreement, you may have to re-take the certification exam for that state.
