To become a nursing assistant in Texas you will need to first enroll in a CNA training school program. The class you select must be licensed for instruction by the Department of Aging and Disability Services. Programs are required to provide a minimum hours of instruction that is currently set at 75 hours in total length that includes 24 hours of clinical training.
During your clinical instruction you will get hands-on skills training to practice some of the tasks nurse aides frequently perform during the work day. Some of the activities you will learn are: communicating with residents/families, transporting residents, catheter care, range of motion exercises, bathing, toileting, nourishment, measuring and recording vital signs, housekeeping, safety practices, observation skills, patients rights, and infection control.
Upon completion of your course training you will want to schedule a time and a place to take the license exams in order to get certified. Your school can help you with this or you can call Nurse Aide Competency Evaluation Services at 1-800-444-5178 and at (512) 467-0615 to find a test site. While you are taking the exam you will need to demonstrate five skills chosen randomly and answer a 70 question multiple choice test. Applicant are required to successfully complete both parts of the exam within three tries to gain registry approval.
Once you pass the exam you will receive verification and your certification in the mail in 4 to 6 weeks. You listing on the registry will grant you active status and you must show work verification as a nurse aide every 24 months to remain active. To check your status on the registry you can call this phone number and enter your social security number when prompted by the automated system: 1-800-452-3934.
If you are already a nursing graduate, military nurse, or CNA from another state you can apply for reciprocity. This process allows you to apply for the state license exams without undergoing training in a school program. For more details about reciprocity contact DADS at 512-438-5495.
