      Hi Jennifer, No need to worry, there are a number of websites that can help you in this process. You can find the list of CNA registries on the websites, where you will find all the details of your state registry. As you are moving to Tennessee, you should go to Tennessee registry site and read the requirements and procedure for transferring certification on their site.

      In case, you feel something lacking, then you should directly call the Tennessee registry. They will guide you with the whole process. Isn't that very easy? If this process works, post a message back so that others too could follow it. Best wishes.
