Application for approval as Regional Test Site "RTS" for nurse aide testing

Regional Test Sites are locations available for delivering the NNAAP® written and skills exam and are open to the public. It is important sites understand expectations for being a regional test site, so please view the Responsibilities document that outlines the testing day expectations.

Please view the Equipment List for Skills testing to understand expectations for site configuration and equipment requirements. The equipment must be provided by the site and will be a determining factor in a final decision. If you are able to meet these requirements, please complete the request application, which will ask questions about the configuration of the site. Any missing or incomplete information will delay the application process.

You will receive verification that your request has been received within 5 business days of receipt of your application.

The decision to proceed with your application will be made within 30-45 days of receipt of your application. The decision will be based on a number of factors, such as candidate demand, other testing locations in the vicinity, and is at the discretion of Pearson VUE.

Please complete the following information about your site and return it to us at least sixty (60) days prior to your first desired test date.
