  • Arizona Certified Caregiver Information


    Note: It may take 3-5 business days to verify your certificate.

    At this time, the Nursa only accepts verified Certified Caregivers (CCG) in the state of Arizona. CCG are verified through the state database, found here only after Aug. 2013 This is where Nursa Specialists go to verify all CCG certifications that are uploaded to our app.

    In order to best align with state laws, Nursa will only accept CCG that are newer than Aug. 2013 and can be found through the state website linked above.

    If you received your CCG prior to 2013, you are encouraged to contact the NCIA Board , check the list of accredited schools, re-certify to the current year, or take a refresher course.

    You can visit their website, Arizona Board of Nursing Care, to learn more.

    What is the difference between a CNA/LNA and Caregiver (CG)?

    CCG are certified to work in residential settings and pass medications, while CNAs are geared to work in a facility setting and cannot administer medications.

    A CNA or LNA license does not supersede a CCG, and in Arizona, a CNA/LNA must also have a bridge endorsement to work as a Certified Caregiver. 

    Can a CNA/LNA become a Caregiver (CG)?

    The short answer is yes! Many institutions offer bridge programs that enable clinicians to take shorter courses for medication training. After successful completion and testing, the clinician would then have an active CNA/LNA and CCG.
