The first thing that you must do to become a nursing assistant is to choose and enroll in a CNA training program that is approved by the state of Texas. There are plenty of facilities that offer programs that can teach you the fundamental skills in a matter of months. In the program, you will learn all the things that you will need when you take care of patients.
While you are enrolled you will get a variety of skills training in both the classroom and actual clinical environment. The curriculum is broken down into a minimum of 51 hours of coursework/lectures, and 24 hours of clinical practice. The tasks you will work on learning include: Heimlich maneuver, CPR, infection control, transporting patients, range of motion exercises, catheter care, communication, psychosocial needs, housekeeping, toileting, measuring and recording vital signs, nourishment, patients rights, observation skills,safety procedures & practices, and postmortem care. Students who are enrolled in a nursing facility program can work there under the direct supervision of a registered nurse for up to four months before needing certification.
You are allowed 24 month to take and pass the competency exams from the time you take your school course. The facility you used for your course can help you find a testing location near your. You can also set up a time to take the exam yourself by contacting the Nurse Aide Competency Evaluation Services at 1-800-444-5178. The exam has two parts and you will receive three opportunities to pass each portion. The parts are a manual skills demonstration, and a written test.
When you complete both parts you are granted active status on the state nurse aide registry and deemed certified. Your active status is valid for a period of two years. You can renew your listing by submitting proof of work verification from your employer. Typically you will receive your certification in 4-6 weeks from the date you finished your license exam.
