Children of the Pioneers CNA Course
Denver City, TX 79323
One of the requirements to be a nursing assistant is to complete a CNA training program that has been approved by the TX Department of Health. You must undergo training there if you wish to be able to take the license exams and be eligible to work in long term care facilities and hospitals. This rule is waived if you are a nursing student or have completed a training program from a different state. This is also applicable to those that had some training as a medic in the military.
Once you have completed the class requirement you will want to schedule a date to take the license exams. You can contact (NACES) or the Nurse Aide Competency Evaluation Services to find the nearest testing location at 1-800-444-5178 or (512) 467-0615 to get the latest details. The test itself has two parts a skills demonstration exam and a 70 question multiple choice test. You have three chances to pass both portions before you need to retake your class training. Those who pass become certified nurse aides for a 24 month period.
Those who successfully complete the examination will receive their certificate within four to six weeks. Those who become certified can check the status of their license at any time by calling 1-800-452-3934. The automated system will ask for your social security number for verification of your identity. If you are currently registered as a nursing assistant in a different state with a current status you may transfer to Texas by applying for reciprocity. To process your transfer you will need to submit DADS-required documentation and meet applicable federal laws.
