Nursing Assistant Registry Test

We are an approved test site for the Minnesota State Registry Test and this competency exam for Nursing Assistants (NA) meets state and federal OBRA requirements.

There are two parts of the MN State Registry Test for Nursing Assistants - the virtual Knowledge Test and the on-campus Skills Test - offered by SCC's Customized Workforce Education division. You must register for and pass both parts in order to be certified and listed on the Minnesota Nursing Assistant Registry. For registry questions, refer to the MDH website.

Download the NEW Minnesota candidate handbook for full testing requirements, and click on the test events listed below for full test descriptions and details.
