CNA Recertification Steps (NUR 108)

  1. Contact the Illinois Department of Public Health at 217-782-0500. If you receive a recording, hang up and try again.
    a. Ask for the Registry Department. Ask IDPH if you are eligible to recertify your CNA.
    b. You will also need to update all of your information with IDPH to become current.
  2. IDPH will send you an information packet.
  3. If you have not attended Kishwaukee College within the last 2 years, or have never attended, you will need to submit an application to Kishwaukee College. You can do this online or in person.
  4. Once you have contacted IDPH and applied to Kishwaukee College, contact Donna Kayes, CNA Coordinator, at 815-825-9464 to receive our Recertification Information Packet.
