The N.C. Center for Aide Regulation and Education processes more than 50,000 Nurse Aide I and Medication Aide renewal forms each year. Timely renewals are vital to the aides and facilities where they work. To complete this number of renewals each year, a scannable renewal application is used to automatically process and enter the data. Copies and faxes of the renewal application cannot be used in place of an original form, since these cannot be read by our scanning equipment.
To improve processing speed and reduce form return rates, we have available for viewing a current renewal form sample with some common errors marked on it (PDF 227 KB). Aides and supervisors can help prevent unnecessary delays or stoppage of the renewal process by avoiding these mistakes.
