Texas, like other states has programs and lots of classes if you want to become a Certified Nursing Assistant. It seems that the majority of these places are colleges rather than nursing homes, though some of these colleges have job placement programs as well so when you get your Certificate, you can directly go in to the workforce.

As far as I can tell there are no colleges in Fort Worth at which you can currently train but there are plenty in state of Texas, head over to 4CNAs the online magazine for Certified Nursing Assistants and click here (www.4cnas.com/CNA-Training-Texas.html) and see which one is closest.

A few sites recommend Houston Community College System’s School of Continuing Education (www.hccs.edu)

Most adult education programs in Texas are free or are relatively inexpensive.

Saying that it may be worth checking with the local nursing homes in Fort Worth (a pretty comprehensive list can be found here (www.dibbern.com/nursing-homes/texas/ft-worth-nursing-homes.h) as some of these places may pay for your training in exchange that you work for them for a set period of time or at the very least offer you tips on which college is the best to attend.

The path to certification begins with an accredited school for nursing assistants as you’re unlikely to be allowed contact with patients before some classroom based lessons. In Texas schools are required to provide at least 51 hours of classroom instruction and 24 hours of practical work for people on their accredited CNA courses.

After this, students are evaluated and once found to be competent, schools usually arrange for them to take their state certification exams. The exam must be passed within two years of graduation.
