Migration To Online Nurse Aid II Initial & Renewal Applications
Dacia Williams

The North Carolina Board of Nursing converted to an online only application process for Nurse Aide II (NAII) initial and renewal listings effective December 1, 2011. The online applications are accessible on the Board of Nursing’s website at www.ncbon.com.

The NAII application migration is an initiative of the Board’s Strategic Plan which is to explore opportunities for improvement through increased use of technology in key processes and communication. This improvement streamlined the listing procedures for both NAIIs and RN Supervisors of NAIIs while providing for a more efficient, reliable and faster process. As of December 1, 2011, paper applications are no longer accepted. NAIIs are required to complete both initial and renewal applications online.

Both the initial and renewal online application processes for NAIIs consist of the following two major steps:

Nurse Aide II Initial Listing

1. RN Nurse Aide II Program Instructor or the Nursing Program Director (for nursing students) must complete the online Nurse Aide II Program Completion Verification before the NAII applicant can proceed with the online application.

2. The Nurse Aide II applicant completes the online initial listing application within 30 business days of program completion.

Nurse Aide II Renewal Listing

1. Nurse Aide II completes online renewal application prior to expiration date.

2. RN Supervisor completes online Nurse Aide II Employment Verification before the application for renewal can be processed.

A review of the first two months of online Nurse Aide II Renewal Listings reflects a significant delay in receiving RN Supervisor Employment Verifications. As required by 21 NCAC 36.0404(g)(1) . . . To be eligible for renewal, the nurse aide II must have worked at least eight hours for compensation during the past 24 months performing nursing care activities under the supervision of a Registered Nurse.

The Board is asking RN Supervisors for assistance in completing the online Nurse Aide II Employment Verification in a more timely manner. This will enable the improved process to operate as designed resulting in renewal of NAII listings within A one hour cycle time. For additional information or clarification regarding the NAII initial or renewal listing processes, contact Dacia Williams, Nurse Aide II Registry Coordinator at (919) 782-3211 ext. 245 or dwilliams@ncbon.com.
