The vast majority of CNA-certified nurses renew their credential through the continuous learning option, which requires you to accumulate 100 CL hours related to your nursing practice specialty over the five-year term.
Track your learning: The easiest way for you to track your CL hours is by using the CNA form – Continuous Learning for Certification Renewal: Activities and Competencies. It is a convenient way to log your activities as you complete them. At the end of your five-year term, you submit your CL activities as part of your renewal application.
