Prometric Automates Florida and New York Nurse Aide Applications

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwire - Jul 13, 2011) - Prometric, trusted provider of market-leading test development and delivery solutions, today announced that it has launched a new automated application process to better service New York and Florida Nurse Aide candidates. Candidates of these programs can now complete and submit applications using an online process that will substantially reduce turn-around times for scheduling their exams.

Enhancement of Prometric's ability to receive applications will expedite the processing timeline and also increase candidate self-service convenience. Candidates who provide Prometric with an e-mail address will experience even faster service, as they can not only submit applications online, but will receive e-mail confirmations with exam details instead of waiting for a mail letter.

"Hard copies of applications often come into Prometric which are illegible or are missing information," said Charles Kernan, chief operations officer at Prometric. "Since there is no email address captured at the time of application submission, documents must then be mailed back so we can obtain required information. Because of this, processing time can widely vary. We would like to encourage both training companies and candidates who come to Prometric directly to switch to our online, automated application process to begin realizing the benefits of shorter waiting times."

Prometric has posted tutorials online so that candidates of each program can follow a detailed explanation of how to complete the application prior to logging on and submitting one. Florida Nurse Aide candidates and New York Nurse Aide candidates can view the tutorials for their respective programs at: and

In addition, candidates of either program can complete and submit an online application by visiting the appropriate page on Prometric's public website, Florida Nurse Aide candidates can begin the process at: and New York Nurse Aide candidates can begin at:
