The Certified Nurse Aide course prepares entry level nursing assistants to achieve a level of knowledge, skills and abilities essential to provide basic care to patients and/or residents of hospitals, assisted living and long-term care facilities.
Students will receive 100 hours of classroom/skills instruction plus 44 hours of clinical instruction.
Please review the pre-requisite list with the Allied Health Coordinator prior to registration.
For students who may have a criminal background, please be advised that the background could keep you from being licensed by the State of Texas. If you have a question about your background and licensure, please check with the Texas Nurse Aide Registry by calling 1-512-438-2050 or certification board for your topic of study to determine if you are qualified to obtain a certificate in that field. You also have the right to request a criminal history evaluation letter from the applicable licensing agency.
