Pearson VUE will be resuming Nurse Aide skills testing in all Washington counties that are in Phase 2 or higher the week of August 10. Additionally, they will be migrating the written portion of the Washington Nurse Aide exam to computer-based testing (CBT) at Pearson VUE third-party test centers in Washington in late August or early September.
Because of the significant changes being made to move to computer-based testing, Pearson VUE
must cancel all examinations that are currently in their system.
Pearson VUE is communicating with all individuals regarding the refund of payments and
how to begin rescheduling
beginning July 29.
The move to computer-based testing also means that the written exam and the skills exam will no longer be delivered at the same locations. Individuals will take a written (or oral) exam at one of Pearson VUE’s third-party computer testing centers and will take skills exams in an RTS or INF location in a scheduled time window. This change allows more testing sessions throughout the day and limits the amount of time that you must wait at the center to have an exam administered.
Additionally, please note that you will be required to bring your own face mask to wear during both the skills and written exams. Additional details can be found
