A mailed recertification form will be sent out to the CNA 2- 3 months before your license expiration date.
You may also contact the state board of nursing and complete an online renewal request form. You must also show proof of employment for at least 8 hours as a CNA since your last license was issued.
As long as you remain active on the state CNA Registry, your license will be valid for 24 months.
Iowa does not charge a fee for CNA license renewal.
