The Bureau of Community & Health Systems is requesting that all training programs share with their graduating certified nurse aides the following information. To help support the success of certified nurse aides, we are also asking if the programs could assist the nurse aides with creating an account in MILogin and MI-NATES systems.

The following information can be found on our website here: Nurse Aide Registry (

Upon successful completion of both the written/oral and clinical exam, the applicant must complete the following in order to obtain a certificate of registration:

1. Create a MILogin account at MILogin - Login (


2. Request access to MI-NATES: Michigan Nurse Aide, Training, and Enforcement System, and set up your user profile. 


Please note, certified nurse aides must also submit a new nurse aide application and pay the $40 registration fee via the MI-NATES System before being placed on the public nurse aide registry.
