Colorado Nurse Aide

Colorado Nurse Aide

Pearson VUE will be migrating the written portion of the Colorado Nurse Aide exam to computer based testing (CBT) at Pearson VUE 3rd party test centers in CO this September. Candidates will no longer be required to take their first attempt at written and skills together.

To make this change we will be immediately suspending all CO nurse aide scheduling and cancelled all exams that were scheduled through December. Once the migration is complete, candidates will be able to schedule their written exam. At this time we do not know when skills testing will resume. This page will be updated once candidates are able schedule their written exam.


Effective September 23, 2019 score reports will be provided online and will no longer mailed to you. To access your score report, please log into your PCM account.
Score reports are generally available within a few hours after a testing event is completed for the day. Click here for printable instructions.

Important Notes Regarding Skills Testing

Exam Assistance Restrictions
You may not receive help from anyone during the Skills Evaluation, and the candidate and the client must speak to one another in English so that the evaluator can understand and correctly score the evaluation.

If either candidate gives help or receives help during the test, or the client and candidate are communicating in a language other than English, the test will be stopped.
