Workforce Certification Programs - Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) Program

A Certified Nurse Aid (CNA) provides basic nursing care to residents of long-term facilities under the supervision of licensed nurses. Our training program is approved by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services and it is divided into two components. Component I consists of 80 hours of necessary classroom and laboratory skills training needed to provide safe and competent basic nursing care. Component II consists of 40 hours of clinical training at a nursing facility where candidates will provide hand-on care to residents under the supervision of a certified instructor. Additionally, candidates will receive individualized preparation for the state examination that is required in order to be placed on the Texas Certified Nurse Aide Registry. No discounts.
