Certified Nurse Aide


The local workforce boards show a major need for C.N.A.s throughout the state, and this short class will certify you to work as a Nurse Aide in Texas. Many of our students take this class to prepare for nursing programs at NCTC. You will learn effective communication, vital signs recording, taking proper care of patients, and becoming a useful advocate for residents in long-term care centers. Our instructors are Licensed Vocational Nurses who have worked in long-term care for many years. Tuition includes scrubs, lab supplies, textbooks, materials, and the state certification exam. (60 hrs lecture + 40 hrs clinical)

State of Texas examinations will take place approximately one month after completion of clinicals.
