Nurse Aide and Medication Aide Systems Begin Transition

HHSC is issuing this alert to announce a system shutdown for the current Nurse Aide (NA) and Medication Aide (MA) registry systems.

Schroeder Measurement Technologies (SMT) will be shut down June 16. No certification or permit activities will be available during the shutdown. Nurse Aide scheduling and exam services will continue on the Prometric Computer Based Testing Network.

This shutdown is in preparation of transitioning NA certification and MA permit activities to the Texas Unified Licensure Information Portal (TULIP), a web-based licensure system designed specifically for licensed long-term care providers and licensees.

More updates will be sent via email once they are available.
