Becoming a CNA (a.k.a nurse aide / patient care assistant)

How to Become a Nursing Assistant in Texas

Are you seeking an awesome healthcare career that enables you to feel fulfilled by positively impacting others each time you go to work? Would a career in the nursing profession or allied health pique your interests? If you answered at least one of the previous questions with a "yes" response, you might wish to look more closely into coursework that trains you to become a nurse aide or certified medication aide. Legacy Healthcare Careers has medication aide classes and CNA lessons near Fort Worth, Dallas, Haltom City and Saginaw. Positive aspects are associated with a nursing healthcare career such as steady pay and multiple job openings. Moreover, the most appealing facet of becoming a CNA in Texas is that prospective nurse aides do not need a license, high school diploma or GED to secure employment as one.

To become a nurse aide in the state of Texas, you will need to successfully complete a certified nursing assistant (CNA) training program that is approved to operate by two entities known as the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) and the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC). A high school diploma or GED is not mandatory to become a CNA in Texas; rather, an 8th-grade level education will be sufficient to get a job. After successfully completing a CNA program, you will need to pass both the written (or oral) and skills portion of the state examination to obtain a certificate as a certified nursing assistant. 

Many options exist to train. Several local community colleges in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex such as Tarrant County College, Hill College, El Centro College and Weatherford College offer programs that train prospective pupils to become CNAs. However, programs at community colleges often take 16 weeks or longer and have stringent admissions requirements. Legacy Healthcare Careers LLC offers affordable CNA classes that are approved by DADS and TWC. Legacy Healthcare Careers utilizes a Texas-approved state curriculum to train students. Most importantly, the fast track training can open the doors to a new, invigorating healthcare career as a nursing assistant in just FOUR WEEKS. Yes, our CNA program is only four weeks long

Because so many CNAs eventually choose to move up the nursing career ladder, the employee turnover rate for nursing assistant job openings is somewhat high. This means that nurse aide jobs are plentiful in the Dallas-Fort Worth employment market. Also, demand for nursing assistants is robust, namely in home care and healthcare facilities that offer long term care, extended care, assisted living, rehabilitative services, hospice, and continuing care to the elderly and aged. Managerial staff at these facilities remain fully aware that a trained, caring CNA contributes heavily to the quality of healthcare they are capable of delivering. Enter the world of medicine and obtain training to become a certified nursing assistant (CNA), certified medication aide (CMA) or medication technician!

CNAs deliver basic nursing care to clients, patients and residents under the supervision of licensed doctors and nurses. Typical CNA duties normally include answering call lights, feeding, obtaining vital signs, assisting with mobility (pushing wheelchairs and geri chairs), re-positioning residents in beds, providing incontinent care, helping with toileting, giving showers, getting patients dressed, performing oral care, completing bed baths, preparing rooms for newly admitted patients, and making beds. Even though nurse aides follow the directives of licensed nurses and physicians, the nurse aide is crucial to the healthcare system in the US.

The tuition for some CNA programs may cost up to $3,000 or more. However, the tuition for the CNA program at Legacy Healthcare Careers LLC is much more affordable!

What personal traits, qualities and characteristics should a good nursing assistant have in order to thrive in the burgeoning healthcare industry? Well, the reassuring news is that the nursing profession has plenty of room for entrants with all types of personalities, traits, temperaments, and preferences. A great CNA should display some caring, understanding, compassion, tolerance, empathy, niceness, patience, kindness, and a solid work ethic. The nursing assistant is often the only face a client might see all day, such as in home hospice, private duty nursing, and home health care. A CNA should also be able to deal well with authority figures such as supervisors and managers. CNAs need to get along with patients, family members, coworkers and vendors. 

The nursing assistant can bring an enormous degree of cheer and joy to the patients that they work with on a daily basis  through conversation and companionship. In many instances, it is the CNA who may know the patient and his or her family members more thoroughly than any other member of the healthcare team. In addition, the profound expertise of the nurse aide is appreciated when the time to formulate the patient's plan of care has come. The nurse aide has a vital role as a needed member on the healthcare team, so a career as a CNA can be really refreshing. With job growth projected to spike well into the next decade and CNA schools that offer several flexible day, evening and weekend programs to meet a number of differing busy schedules and personal budgets, the time has never been more optimal to become a certified nursing assistant.

Even though the nursing assistant does not render medical decisions or diagnose any diseases or afflictions, they are absolutely fundamental to the overall quality of care that patients receive. When an injured patient requires assistance with getting dressed for the day, it is the nursing assistant that rises to the occasion to provide the much needed help. When a resident or client needs some assistance at meal time, it is the nursing assistants who are there to deliver the care. When a patient needs to be re-positioned in bed for comfort or to prevent the formation of bed sores, it is the nursing assistants who are the ones that offer comfort and personal attention in the patient's time of need.

By delivering the essential basics of nursing care and assisting with all sorts of activities of daily living, the certified nursing assistant ensures that any stay at a hospital, skilled nursing facility, group home or rehabilitation center is personable, comforting, pleasurable, and memorable for its positive attributes. The crucial role of a CNA is entrusted with the delivery of enhanced direct patient care. Likewise, the role of the CNA frequently serves as a basic springboard into other careers in the healthcare industry, nursing profession and medical field. The entry level nurse aide role can result in a number of fabulous opportunities along the career ladder. The entry level nurse aide role also enables entrants to quickly enter the nursing profession without a completing massive amount of schooling or spending a huge amount of tuition dollars.

nursing career ladder: overview of CNA, LPN/LVN and RN ROLes

Additional Information About The Nursing Career Ladder in the United States

The certified nursing assistant (CNA) is an important healthcare worker who provides basic nursing care to patients, residents and clients. Fundamentally, the CNA is overseen by licensed nurses and helps patients with care tasks such as dressing, showering, feeding, bathing, toileting, obtaining vital signs, and reporting changes in condition. the nursing assistant is the ultimate backbone of almost any hospital, healthcare center or nursing facility.  Nursing assistants, also known as nurses' aides and patient care assistants, provide direct patient care. Legacy Healthcare Careers LLC offers training to prepare pupils for a career as a Dallas/Fort Worth nurse aide in four weeks. Even though the CNA fulfills a vital role, many people decide to use a CNA career as a springboard into other nursing positions such as LPN, LVN, RN and advanced practice nursing (APN).

A licensed practical nurse, or LPN, is a nurse who provides basic nursing care. Basic nurses in the states of California and Texas are known as licensed vocational nurses, or LVNs. The LPN and the LVN are one and the same type of nurse. At times, LPNs have been referred to as the eyes and ears for the RNs and doctors. LPNs tend to spend more hands-on time delivering direct care to patients than both RNs and doctors. LPNs deliver direct nursing care that usually includes important tasks such as medication administration, vital sign collection, wound care, documentation, supervision of nurses aides, reporting changes in patient status, and providing catheter care. The very first step to become an LPN entails successful completion of a state approved practical nursing program, which customarily takes about one year to 18 months to finish. The practical nursing program graduate needs to also pass a licensing exam to obtain state licensure as an LPN. 

A registered nurse, or RN, is a multifaceted professional nurse who provides direct and indirect nursing care. During the provision of direct patient care, RNs observe, assess and document objective signs and subjective symptoms. RNs note other findings such as reactions and progress, which furnishes the foundation for the planning of patient care, interventions, and evaluation of the patient care being delivered. RNs formulate and revise nursing care plans, provide teaching and education to patients and their families in appropriate care techniques, and assist individuals, groups and populations to enhance or maintain their health statuses. Professional registered nursing practice necessitates a notably vast fund of knowledge to engage in competent assessment, planning and  intervention to promote health, prevent illnesses and assist patients in the management of their disease processes. Even though state laws dictate nursing's scope of practice, it is typically the unique needs of that day's patient load that will determine the RN's duties.

An advanced practice nurse, or APN, is a registered nurse with additional education and training above and beyond the customary RN role. According to the American Nurses Association (2018), APNs include nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, nurse anesthetists, and nurse midwives, and all types of APNs have an integral role in the future of the entire healthcare system. APNs regularly serve as the patient's primary care provider and remain at the helm of delivering preventative care modalities to the public as a whole. APNs treat and diagnose disease processes, offer advice to the public on health issues, manage chronic disease processes, and engage in continuous education to stay abreast of any technical, methodological, or other emerging changes in the nursing profession. APNs have all earned a minimum of a master’s degree, in addition to the initial nursing education and licensing required for all RNs. Some APNs are educated at the doctoral degree level (PhD or DNP). The DNP degree is a doctor of nursing practice degree.
