Other than English Exams

Other than English exams are available ONLY to those persons working in facilities in which 51% or more of the residents primarily speak the language that is being requested for translation. The fee for a translated exam is $200 ($75 + $125 translation fee). The fee for a translated Failed Exam Retake is $200. The fee for a translated No Show Exam Reschedule is $170.

The request for a translated test must be accompanied by an official letter (on letterhead) from the facility administrator which will: (1) verify the employment of the candidate and (2) verify the primary language of the resident population. Testing in languages other than English is offered on a limited basis. Please contact SIUC Nurse Aide Testing for more information. Students who are approved for a translated exam must take a paper-based test and will need to use the voucher payment process to purchase a seat for testing.
