CNA classes in Texas

To be accredited by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services, CNA classes in Texas must meet the federal minimum of 75 hours of instruction and 16 hours of clinical training as part of their curricula. These requirements usually take a minimum of 8 weeks to complete, but can usually be finished sooner by full-time students. Admission requirements for most programs include a clean criminal record, a high school diploma or GED (although this is not a state requirement) and the candidate being at least 18 years of age at the time of enrollment.

In order to become a CNA in Texas, students must pass the NNAAP within 24 months of finishing their training. If an individual is unable to accomplish this within the specified time frame, he or she must retake all of their CNA courses before becoming eligible for testing again. To be considered eligible for hire in the State of Texas, a CNA candidate is required to be registered in the Texas Nurse Aide Registry.

To meet the expected 20%-plus increase in demand for nurses aides in Texas over the next decade, there are currently accredited programs offering CNA classes in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Amarillo, Killeen, Tyler, Beaumont and El Paso.
