If you are planning to start your career in nursing in Texas, you must first complete CNA training programs from accredited Texas school and obtain CNA Certification by passing competency evaluation test offered by numerous schools and community colleges.
In Texas, the responsibility to formulate Certified Nursing Assistant program lays with the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS), who reviews and approves or disapproves nurse aide training and competency evaluation programs (NATCEPs) and nurse aide competency evaluation programs (CEPs).

The training program offered by schools and numerous other training institutes, continues for nearly 8 to 13 weeks or 2-6 months. The program includes 75 hours classroom learning and 100 hours clinical hands-on training. The successful completion of training allows a candidate to sit for the Certification test and clearing this exam gets listing with Texas Nurse Aide Registry. But, it is also essential to remember that to receive CNA License/Certificate, it is essential that the candidate must complete following prerequisites:

1.     Submit two fingerprint cards
2.     Two photos (passport size),
3.     A negative TB test within the past 6 months
4.     Undergo a state and federal background check.

The cost and duration of the training program varies according to schools and institutes, offering these programs.
