April 5 Open House

It is that time of the month again! Legacy Healthcare Careers, a small trade school with a cozy campus located between the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, is hosting an Open House and Open Registration Event on Friday April 5, 2019 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Legacy Healthcare Careers is located at 7100 Boulevard 26, Suite 205, Richland Hills TX 76180. Call (682)313-6404 or (682)626-5266 to RSVP and confirm your attendance.

Light refreshments and beverages will be served, and the nurse aide training program instructors will be readily available to address questions potential students might have. Two nurse aide (CNA) training programs, one for mornings and one for evenings, start on Monday April 8, 2019. Both of these are two-week CNA training classes. As always, class schedules are created to fit into the lives of adult learners who have full time jobs.

This is an Open House event; in addition, this is an Open Registration event. In order to enroll, new students will need to provide a picture identification such as a drivers license, passport, school ID or state issued identification card. Also, a social security card will need to be presented along with a diploma, GED, high school transcript, college transcript, old report cards or any proof of completing the 8th (eighth) grade.

To register for the two-week CNA program, new students will need to have a $200 down payment to ensure their seat in class for the next nurse aide training class that starts on April 8. Acceptable forms of payment include cash, credit card, debit card, money orders, and cashiers checks. Moreover, Legacy Healthcare Careers will set up flexible payment plans with as low as $200 down to begin the next class.

Legacy Healthcare Careers is a legitimate career training school. All of the healthcare training programs offered at Legacy Healthcare Careers are wholly approved to operate by the Texas Workforce Commission. Programs also have full approval to operate from the state Department of Aging and Disability. Rest assured that new students are in competent, caring hands at Legacy Healthcare Careers CNA School!

Well, here is the million dollar question: why should potential students and adult learners pick Legacy Healthcare Careers over other local career training schools? First of all, we offer smaller class to promote learning. We provide hardcore job placement assistance before students even graduate. We offer after-care support services after students graduate such as resume preparation, skills practice, and career coaching.

Do any other compelling reasons exist to choose Legacy Healthcare Careers over some of the other nurse aide /CNA training programs in the Dallas /Fort Worth metroplex? The school’s convienient Mid Cities area campus is easily accessible for those who live in Dallas, Grand Prairie, Fort Worth, Denton, Arlington, Euless, Irving and surrounding cities. The tuition and fees are very affordable, and scholarships are available.

Every enrolled nurse aide student undergoes a 40 hour hands-on clinical practicum externship at a local skilled nursing facility or licensed healthcare center. During this comprehensive clinical externship, an abundance of chances to obtain practice with basic nursing care and personal care procedural skills on real patients, residents and clients are available.

Call (682)626-5266 or (682)313-6404 to jump-start your legacies at Legacy Healthcare Careers CNA School. We will see you in class soon.


Nursing Career Ladder (Part Four): the Advanced Practice Nurse

This post is the fourth and final one in this four-part installment series that has aimed to put a spotlight on the diverse nursing career ladder in the United States.

The first post in this particular series discussed certified nursing assistants, known as CNAs, and the second post elaborated on the unique importance of licensed practical nurses (LPNs), also known as licensed vocational nurses (LVNs) in the states of California and Texas. The third post highlighted the significance of registered nurses. This fourth post will shed light on advanced practice nurses.

An advanced practice nurse, or APN, is also known as an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN). The APN is a registered nurse (RN) with additional educational attainment, specialized training and a wide knowledge base that soars above and beyond the customary bedside RN role.

According to the American Nurses Association (2018), APNs include nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, nurse anesthetists, and nurse midwives. Additionally, all APNs possess a vital place in the future of the entire healthcare system in the United States. APNs routinely serve as patients’ primary care providers. They are placed at the forefront of the provision of preventative healthcare to the public as a whole.

APNs treat and diagnose disease processes, possess the authority to write prescriptions in most states, advise the general public on health issues, and manage chronic disease processes in strict accordance with high quality evidence-based practices. APNs also obtain continuing education to remain abreast of the continual, technical, methodological, and other emergent changes in the nursing profession.

All APNs have attained a minimum of a master of science degree in nursing with an advanced practice specialization. This educational attainment is in addition to the initial nursing education and licensing that is mandated for all RNs. A number of APNs hold doctoral degrees (PhD or DNP). The PhD degree is the doctor of philosophy in nursing science, and the DNP is a doctor of nursing practice degree.

Many APNs started their glorious careers as nursing assistants before ascending the healthcare career ladder through hard work, education, persistence and the pursuit of lifelong learning. Legacy Healthcare Careers is a Dallas/ Fort Worth CNA school in the Mid-Cities/HEB area of Texas that offers coursework to become a nursing assistant in four short weeks.
