National Nurse Aide Assessment Program (NNAAP®)
The Nursing Home Reform Act, adopted by Congress as part of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1987 (OBRA ’87), was designed to improve the quality of care in long-term health care facilities and to define training and evaluation standards for nurse aides who work in such facilities. Each state is responsible for following the terms of this federal law.
The National Nurse Aide Assessment Program (NNAAP®) is an examination program designed to determine minimal competency to become a certified nurse aide in your state. The NNAAP was developed by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc., (NCSBN) to meet the nurse aide evaluation requirement of federal and state laws and regulations. Pearson VUE is the authorized administrator of the NNAAP in your state.
The NNAAP Examination is an evaluation of nurse aide-related knowledge, skills, and abilities. The NNAAP Examination is made up of both a Written (or Oral) Examination and a Skills Evaluation. The purpose of the NNAAP Examination is to test that you understand and can safely perform the job of an entry-level nurse aide.
NNAAP Exam Overview
The two parts of the examination process, the Written (or Oral) Examination and the Skills Evaluation, will be administered on the same day. You must pass both parts to be certified and listed on your state’s Nurse Aide Registry. The Nnaap Nurse Aide Practice Written Exam consists of seventy (70) multiple-choice questions written in English.
An Oral Examination may be taken in place of the Written Examination if you have difficulty reading English. The Oral Examination consists of sixty (60) multiple-choice questions and ten (10) reading comprehension questions. If you want to take the Oral Examination, you must request it when you submit an application to register for the examination.
At the Skills Evaluation you will be asked to perform five (5) randomly selected nurse aide skills. You will be given twenty-five (25) minutes to complete the five (5) skills. You will be rated on these skills by a Nurse Aide Evaluator. A complete listing of the skills is shown on pages 17 to 32.
