Can I work as a nurse-aide without taking the exam?

A nurse aide may work in a long-term care facility up to 120 days after successfully completing an approved Illinois nurse aide training program while waiting to take and pass the Nurse Aide Competency Evaluation. If the exam has not been passed within 120 days of employment as a nursing assistant, the employer is required to remove the aide from a direct care position until the exam has been passed.
