June is Men’s Health Month

Did you know that June is Men’s Health Month? Men’s Health Month is a nationwide observance that aims to increase knowledge regarding men’s unique healthcare issues. Other noble aims of Men’s Health Month are to encourage boys, men and their loved ones to adhere to healthier habits and introduce more healthful choices into their lives such as regular exercise and cleaner food choices.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) asserts that males in the United States tend to die approximately five years sooner than females. Moreover, men die at higher rates from nine of the top ten leading causes of death in the US. Males are also far less likely to visit doctors for preventative issues than their female counterparts. The goal of Men’s Health Month is to change these dismal statistics for the better.

During Men’s Health Month, men are strongly encouraged to take control of their health statuses, and families are encouraged to teach young boys healthful lifestyle choices and habits throughout their childhood years (Office of Minority Health, 2019). There are a number of actionable things people can do to observe Men’s Health Month. The actions people can take to support Men’s Health Month have been listed below.

  1. Members of the public should wear blue on Friday June 14th, which has been designated ‘Wear Blue Day.’ This day is a part of the year-round Wear BLUE® awareness campaign that had been created by Men’s Health Network to raise awareness about the importance of men’s health and to encourage males to live longer and healthier lives (Office of Minority Health, 2019).
  2. Utilize the hashtag #MensHealthMonth as much as possible during the month of June when creating posts on social media outlets such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
  3. Encourage the men and boys in your life to adhere to healthier lifestyle choices such as smoking cessation, regular physical exercise, stress reduction, healthy eating habits, and ample sleep and rest.
  4. Ensure that the men in and boys in your life routinely seek medical advice via primary healthcare providers to promote prevention and/or early detection of potential health problems.
  5. Parents, grandparents and guardians can proactively teach young their boys healthy lifestyle choices to increase the likelihood that these boys will adopt healthier lifestyles as adult males.

Choosing a Healthcare Career

Screenshot 2019-06-07 at 2.23.00 PM

Let’s face it: the choices we make tend to play an integral role in our day to day lives. Also, no one can deny that some choices definitely carry more long-term significance than others. For instance, the choice to have turkey bacon and lightly scrambled eggs for breakfast has less long-term fallout than the decision to obtain higher learning or job training. In other words, some of the choices we make can have a profound impact on our outcomes in life.

An individual should always proceed with caution when making decisions. In addition, important lessons can be gleaned from each choice that an individual has made. One choice that many people make is the option to train or retrain for a new career. Many questions arise that revolve around this monumental decision. Why do I want a new career? Which career path do I choose? Which school do I attend? How much will this cost? How will this decision affect the people around me?

Career training might not be a matter that requires decision-making on a daily basis for most people. Nonetheless, multiple aspects exist that contribute to the choices we make with regards to our jobs and/or careers. The choice to enter a certain field or industry can lead to either a lifetime of rewards or many years of major headaches. Since most people spend approximately one-third of their lives on the job, it is crucial to work in a field that is enjoyable and stable.

In general, the majority of individuals cannot go wrong by choosing to pursue a career in the healthcare industry. Jobs in the healthcare field are plentiful and offer perks such as steady pay, career mobility, educational progression, and opportunities to advance. For example, a certified nursing assistant (CNA) can return to school to become a licensed practical nurse (LPN), registered nurse (RN), or physician (MD). Thus, the choice to enter the healthcare field to become a CNA is extremely wise.

By examining the variety of healthcare career choices that can be made and paying close attention to the benefits and drawbacks associated with each, the major task of making a final decision on medical field job training can become a much more informed process. The potential lessons a person can learn by making deliberate career training choices often plays an enormous part in how future encounters will be managed in relation to the employment marketplace. Choose wisely!

To obtain a healthcare career as a nursing assistant in just two short weeks in the Dallas/ Fort Worth Metroplex, call Legacy Healthcare Careers CNA School at (682)626-5266.

Texas CNA Skills (Part Eighteen): Skills That Are Not Performed on Other Live People at the CNA State Test

Screenshot 2019-05-29 at 9.04.42 AM

Candidates and test takers who have completed a nurse aide training program must attain a passing score on the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program exam, more commonly known as the CNA state test, in order to receive state certification as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) in Texas. The CNA state test consists of two parts: a written section with 70 multiple choice questions as well as a skills evaluation.

Both the written section and skills evaluation of the CNA state test must be passed in order to receive state certification. The skills evaluation requires the test taker to demonstrate five testable skills in the presence of a nurse aide evaluator (NAE) who is scoring them as he or she observes the performance of each skill. There are exactly 22 testable skills that could appear on the CNA state test in Texas, and five of them will be selected at random for the test taker to perform.

Out of the 22 testable skills, 15 of them are to be performed on a live person at the CNA state test. In other words, the vast majority of skills will be performed on a random student with whom the test taker will be partnered at the Pearson Vue testing center. This is a reciprocal process because the two partners will be performing their five skills on each other as the NAE observes the skills demonstrations for scoring purposes.

Only seven of the 22 hands-on skills are not performed on a live person at the Pearson Vue testing center during the skills evaluation portion of the CNA state test. The first skill is hand hygiene (a.k.a. hand-washing); of course, test takers will demonstrate how to wash their own hands in front of the NAE. Thus, hand hygiene is not done on another live person. Keep in mind that all test takers will be required to complete the hand hygiene skill due to the emphasis on infection prevention.

Moreover, the personal protective equipment (PPE) skill, which requires the test taker to don and doff a gown and a pair of gloves properly, is not performed on another live person. The test taker will be dressing oneself in the PPE items before demonstrating how to appropriately remove and dispose of them. Another skill that will not be performed on a live person at the CNA state test is denture care. Rather, the test taker will demonstrate how to correctly provide care for an upper or lower denture.

Measurement and recording of urinary output is yet another skill that the test taker will never perform on a live person at the testing center. The test taker will be called upon to accurately measure the amount of simulated urine in front of the NAE before recording the numeric result. Measuring and recording urinary output is considered one of the five measurement skills that requires correct documentation at the Pearson Vue testing center in order to achieve a passing score.

Due to concerns that revolve around privacy, safety and infection control, the skills of catheter care, perineal care and applying an elastic stocking to one leg will always be performed on a mannequin at the CNA state test. In essence, these three skills are not done on a live person at the Pearson Vue testing center. This bit of knowledge often relieves test takers since they would feel uncomfortable if a random student wiped their most private areas in front of a NAE during a perineal care skill demonstration.

Do you want to become a nursing assistant in two weeks in the DFW area? Call Legacy Healthcare Careers at (682)626-5266 where you will be trained to pass the Texas CNA state examination on your first attempt.

Texas CNA Skills (Part Seventeen): Do Not Forfeit Your CNA State Examination Fees!

Graduates of certified nursing assistant (CNA) training programs most likely put forth a whole lot of effort in a diligent manner to complete their coursework and practice their skills to perfection. The next logical step is passing the CNA state exam. Achieving a passing score on the CNA state exam is like icing on a cake because it is a rewarding culmination of the student’s perseverance and efforts throughout the previous weeks or months.

Nevertheless, there are a number of ways students can mess up on their efforts to take the CNA state test before they ever even get the opportunity to set foot in the the Pearson Vue testing center. In other words, some students make one or more silly mistakes that result in forfeiture of their testing appointments in addition to loss of the exam monies they paid.

The following is a list of actions that could potentially cause students to not be admitted into the Pearson Vue testing center and lead to forfeiture of CNA state exam fees.

  1. Test takers will need to arrive at the Pearson Vue testing center approximately 30 minutes prior to their scheduled test appointment times. A failure to arrive at the testing center on time will result in forfeiture of the CNA state exam appointment as well as any testing fees that had been previously paid.
  2. Test takers who want to change or cancel their testing appointment times will need to provide proper notice to Pearson Vue. Test takers who opt to change or cancel their state test appointment times without providing sufficient advance notice will forfeit the exam fee.
  3. Test takers will need to present two forms of unexpired identification in order to be admitted into the Pearson Vue testing center. For instance, a valid drivers license and a social security card would be acceptable forms of identification. Test takers who do not present two forms of unexpired identification will forfeit their testing appointments and lose the exam fees they previously paid.

Many adult learners want to either continue their educations and/or retrain for a new career pathway. Therefore, night classes can serve as a very convenient way to pursue all those educational goals that may have been deferred or tossed aside long ago. In essence, evening and night classes allow busy adults to finish the same educational pursuits that they had always wanted to achieve before their lives became somewhat hectic.

Legacy Healthcare Careers offers several affordable 11-day nursing assistant (CNA) night classes in the DFW area between Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas. The next 11-day CNA evening class starts on Monday October 28th with a projected graduation date of November 8th, while another 11-day night CNA class begins later in the month of November. Call (682)626-5266 to enroll in night CNA classes near Dallas and Fort Worth.

Life tends to become busy in ways that can distract people from their long term goals, and if a person is attempting to manage a full schedule, night CNA classes can be really convenient. In an intensely competitive local employment market, the more training an individual has, the merrier his or her job prospects. Job training gives people a competitive advantage. Evening and night classes allow us to continue day routines while fulfilling job training goals during late night hours.

In addition to the extreme convenience, going to night CNA classes can come with a myriad of other positive aspects. Adults with full time jobs who might be unable to get ample time off during the daylight hours to go to classes on a more traditional schedule will need night classes to allow them to retrain for new careers and improve their overall value in the job market. Working while going to school can help offset the cost of classes while still leaving ample time to be with family and friends.
