What is Dreambound?

Dreambound is the #1 online platform for candidates looking for Certified Nursing Assistant training. Top CNA schools across the country list their classes on dreambound.com.

Do you have a program for active CNAs?

Yes we do! If you have an existing CNA license or are in the process of getting one, you can register for Dreambound Candidate Portal.

How do I retrieve my CNA license number?

We are not able to help you obtain your license number. You can visit your state nursing board website or contact the Nurse Aide Registry in your state here.

If I missed the certification renewal period, do I have to complete the CNA training again to become certified?

That depends on the state you’re in. You can call the Nurse Aide Registry in your area to find out.

I’m already a CNA but I would like to be certified in another state. Is this possible?

Yes, most states allow you to transfer your license. You need to request an Application for Enrollment by Reciprocity. Call the Nurse Aide Registry in your home state and the state where you plan to get certified.

I have a license but I’m not sure if it’s updated. How can I check?

To check if your license is updated or expired, you can contact the Nurse Aide Registry in your state to verify your status. Check the list here.

If my CNA license expires, do I need to take a training course to get certified?

Your CNA license is typically valid for two years from the date it was issued. If your license is expired, check first with your state department of health to learn about recertification requirements.

Caregiving

Is the caregiver certification the same as the CNA certification?

Both are different in education curriculum. CNA certification requires more specific classes than Caregiver, although both generally share similar job functions. You can apply for a Caregiver certification through Dreambound here.

Do you need a school diploma or GED in order to be a caregiver in Arizona?

Most of our training providers in Arizona don’t require a high school diploma or GED to get a certification in caregiving. You may need to take an 8th grade equivalency test or otherwise demonstrate completion of 8th grade.

How does the referral program work?

We will pay as soon as you reach out to us to claim your bounty and we can confirm the person you have referred has enrolled. It may take 2-3 business days for your payment to process depending on the payment method you choose.

What is the definition of enrollment?

We consider a candidate to have enrolled when they have made their initial payment, completed all the registration steps, and show up for a minimum of 3 class sessions.

I have more questions about the referral program.
