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

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.

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 2-week nursing assistant (CNA) night classes in the DFW area between Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas. The next 2-week CNA evening class starts on Monday July 8th with a projected graduation date of July 22nd, while another 2-week night CNA class begins later in the month of July. 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.

Call (682)626-5266 to either schedule a tour of Legacy Healthcare Careers CNA School and/or ask about enrolling in one of their evening/night CNA classes with a convenient Mid Cities location directly between the DFW cities of Dallas and Fort Worth.

It is springtime! Legacy Healthcare Careers, a healthcare career training trade school with a campus location between the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, is hosting a Spring Fling Open Registration event on Friday April 26, 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. As always, call (682)313-6404 or (682)626-5266 to RSVP and confirm your attendance.

Light refreshments, coffee, soda, bottled water and snacks will all be served at the Spring Fling event. The nurse aide program instructors will be there to address concerns and questions potential students have regarding CNA training. A weekend nurse aide (CNA) training class is going to start on Sunday, May 5th. Also, two CNA training classes, one for days and one for nights, are slated to start on Monday April 29, 2019.

Both programs that start on April 29th are two week CNA training classes with scheduled graduation dates of May 13th. The weekend CNA class that starts on May 5th is a month-long program that has a scheduled graduation date of June 3rd. As expected, these class schedules have been specially created to fit well into the lives of adult learners who have full time jobs and/or obligations outside the school setting.

The Spring Fling is an Open Registration event to enroll in CNA classes. To enroll, new students must have picture identification such as a drivers license, military ID, passport, school ID or state issued ID in addition to a social security card. Also, students will need to present proof of prior education such as a high school diploma, GED, school transcript, old report card, 8th grade diploma or any proof of completing the 8th (eighth) grade.

To register for either the weekend CNA classes or one of the two-week CNA programs, new students must put $200 down to hold their seat in school for the upcoming nurse aide training class of their choice. Forms of payment include cash, credit card, debit card, money orders, and cashiers checks. Furthermore, Legacy Healthcare Careers will set up flexible payment plans with as low as a $200 down payment to begin the next CNA class.

Legacy Healthcare Careers is a small, family-owned career training trade school with a number of happy graduates. The nurse aide programs are accredited by the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS). Legacy Healthcare Careers has regulation /approval to operate from the Career Schools and Colleges division of the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC).

Well, here is the burning question: why should adult learners opt to attend CNA classes at Legacy Healthcare Careers over other local career training schools? Firstly, we offer smaller class to ensure you learn. We offer genuine job placement assistance before students even graduate. We have aftercare support services as soon as students graduate such as resume preparation, CNA state test skills practice, and career coaching.

Are there any other convincing reasons to select Legacy Healthcare Careers over some of the other nurse aide /CNA training programs in the Dallas /Fort Worth metro area? The school’s convienient Mid Cities area campus can be easily reached by pupils who live in Dallas, Irving, Grand Prairie, Fort Worth, Denton, Arlington, Euless and nearby cities. Tuition, fees and overall cost of attendance are really low. We have CNA scholarships.

Every nurse aide student at Legacy Healthcare Careers must complete a 40-hour hands-on clinical practicum externship at a local healthcare center, extended care facility or skilled nursing facility. During this all-inclusive clinical practicum, many opportunities will arise to get hands-on practice with basic nursing care tasks and personal care procedural skills as students practice on real patients, residents and clients.

So, pick up the phone and call (682)626-5266 or (682)313-6404 to jump-start your legacies at Legacy Healthcare Careers CNA School. We would love to see you in Legacy’s nurse aide (CNA) training classes soon.
