Enrolling in a certified nursing assistant training program that is approved by the state of Texas is one of their requirements to take the license exams. Class instruction will cover theoretical procedures in the classroom and provide hands-on training performing common nurse aide tasks in a medical environment. Some of the duties you will practice include: catheter care, housekeeping, infection control, safety protocols, transporting residents, feeding patients, toileting, range of motion exercises, measuring vital signs [such as blood pressure, pulse, and respiration], and communication skills.
When you have completed your school training and are ready to take the license exams your facility will usually set a date for you. However, if you need to find a testing location nearby you can contact (NACES) the Nurse Aide Competency Evaluation Services at 1-800-444-5178. When you take the exam you will find it has two parts, a written test and a skills exam. Passing both portions within three tries is recquired to be placed on the nurse aide registry. Those who do not pass are required to retake the training portion. Once certified the nurse aide is eligible to work as a CNA for 24 months before renewal is necessary. You can check your registry status in Texas at anytime by calling 1-800-452-3934.
They will no longer require you to undergo their training if you are a nursing graduate or a medic that has been trained in the military. This also goes to same for those nursing assistants that received training but were not able to take the license exams.
