The Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ Division of Quality Assurance (DQA) administers state and federal requirements for the Wisconsin Nurse Aide Registry. Starting September 1, Headmaster will manage the competency testing and registry for certified nurse assistants (CNAs). Pearson VUE currently manages these responsibilities, and this transition will require some training blackout dates as noted below.
  • August 11: Last date Pearson VUE will provide competency testing (Note: all applications must be in by August 1 for testing through August 11)
  • August 12-31: No testing available
  • August 21: Online registration available with Headmaster for training after September 1
Information and updates can be found at the DHS Nurse Aide Training and Registry website. If you have questions during this transition, email the DQA Office of Caregiver Quality.
