SRNA Renewal Information

How to Renew your SRNA Certification​​

The state registered nurse aide active status is good for two years and must be renewed. The date you passed your nurse aide competency examination is the date used for renewal of your SRNA status.


  • SRNA active status is good for two years and must be renewed every 24 months.
  • Renewal notifications are mailed two (2) months prior to the expiration date of active status to the address listed in the KNAR database.
  • All SRNA expiration dates have been changed to reflect the last day of the month the registry status expires. For example:
  • Initial SRNA certification issued: 6/4/20, the certification will expire 6/30/22. Hours worked must be earned between 6/4/20 and 6/30/22 for the first renewal. The SRNA certification will then expire 6/30/24.
  • For the next renewal, hours worked must be earned between 6/30/22 and 6/30/24. The SRNA certification will expire 6/30/26.

Note: Proof of hours worked must be at least eight hours of paid employment.



The following nurse aide information must be included with all renewal requests:

  • Full Name (First, Middle, and Last)
  • Social Security Number or SRNA Number
  • Date of Birth
  • Current Mailing Address
  • Telephone Number

Proof of a minimum of eight hours of employment as a state registered nurse aide performing nursing or nursing-related functions for compensation in each 24-month period is required. Proof of employment can be one of the following

  • Paycheck Stub

  • Letter from a healthcare facility on official letterhead signed by the appropriate party
  • Private Duty Renewal Requirements
  • State registered nurse aides performing private duty nursing must have the person they are caring for or a family member of that individual complete a State Registered Nurse Aide (SRNA)​ Priv​ate Duty Form, a copy of which is also located in the KBN Document Library.

  • The form must list all of the following:
    • Nursing-related Duties Performed
    • Dates of employment
    • Proof of Payment for Services

​No. However, you may reinstate your registry status if you can provide evidence that you were employed in a nursing-related capacity for at least eight paid hours prior to the expiration date. If you cannot show such proof of employment, contact KCTCS to retake the nurse aide classes and competency test.

You must provide proof of working eight paid hours for every two years the registration has been lapsed.
