    You won't lose your licensure/certification because of calling into work. In my state, a CNA can't be removed from the CNA registry. If a CNA has abused, neglected or taken resident property, and it is investigated and substantiated by the state....the CNA can get what is called a federal indicator that prohibits him/her from working in any type of setting that receives Medicare/Medicaid for payment (i.e. nursing homes, hospitals). Calling in, or not calling in to work or not showing up isn't going to be something where you face discipline by the state. If it were, there would be a lot of people without a license/certification!
