To become a nursing assistant in Texas you must take and pass the state license exams. Before you can take the exams, you must complete several requirements like passing the federal and state background check, submitting documentation, and passing a training program. The course you enroll in is required to be recommend by the Department of Aging and Disability Services. Classes must provide the proper instruction curriculum and amount of class hours. During your course you will receive two types of schooling, which are clinical practice and class coursework.
For the clinical part you will receive at the very minimum 24 hours of hands-on skills training. During your classroom part you will receive no less than 51 hours of theoretical instruction and lectures. The class is structured to provide you with the skills and experience to pass the license exams and be proficient while on the job.
After your class requirement is finished your school may be able to help you schedule a time to take the exams. The examination will be made up to two parts; a written/oral and a skills demonstration part. You are required to pass both parts to get your license. Each applicant is allowed to take each test up to three times and must pass it in that amount or be required to retake their training course. If you need help finding a location to take the competency exams you can contact NACES to help you at 1-800-444-5178.
