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.

Reasons to Consider a Healthcare Career (Part Two)

NOTE: This is the second piece in a five-part series that aims to bring up some compelling reasons for considering a career in the healthcare industry. Click here to read part one of this series.

As some might already know, the healthcare sector is a huge industry that employs a whole lot of people in the United States and around the world. In addition, the healthcare sector continues to grow each and every day due to an array of factors. These factors include an increasing population, varied funding sources, and a large number of aging people that belong to the Baby Boomer generation who need healthcare since they have chronic illnesses that are associated with advanced age.

Hence, it would make logical sense that a massive field such as the healthcare industry would be loaded with plenty of lucrative opportunities for those with enough tenacity and grit to continually plug away at it until they meet their career goals. A multitude of great reasons exist for seriously thinking about paving a path into healthcare career. Continue to read in order to discover a few more of these solid reasons!

REASON 4: There is the potential to have a positive impact on patients.

Regardless of one’s role or job title in the healthcare industry, every single task will contribute in some way to helping patients and their families. A career in the healthcare field enables workers to achieve their goals of assisting people while simultaneously earning a paycheck and livelihood. Every duty and task in healthcare is meaningful and effective in some way.

As previously stated, one’s role in healthcare does not matter in relation to the positive things that can be carried out. For instance, a dietary aide can make a patient feel like his preferences matter when she asks him about his likes and dislikes concerning food. A nursing assistant can lift the spirits of the lonely elderly patient by paying attention to him. The activities director can spark interest and put smiles on the faces of bored nursing home residents.

REASON 5: Multiple career options exist for people with differing preferences.

Some people thrive when they have close contact with others. These people would be fulfilled with a healthcare career that allows them to provide direct patient care and build meaningful relationships during the course of each shift at work. Nursing assistants, nurses, and other members of direct care nursing staff typically have the closest contact with patients and their families.

Other people prefer to assist society in a more indirect manner while working behind the scenes. These types of people would also be fulfilled with a career in the healthcare field that allows them to be of assistance in a less visible way. For instance, case managers coordinate the care of patients and assist them with obtaining services without ever laying a finger on them. A few case managers work remotely via telephone, and therefore, never meet patients face to face.

REASON 6: Healthcare workers are held in high esteem by the public.

Individuals who work in the healthcare field are often held in high esteem as valuable members of society. This is due to the fact that they devote their time to at work to assist other people. Healthcare workers of all types are also regarded as important because they routinely provide services that are very much needed and potentially life-saving.

The nursing assistant who notifies the charge nurse on duty that one of her patients has left-sided chest pain might have saved a life by reporting a change in a patient’s status in a timely manner, thereby preventing a heart attack. The restorative aide who assists a choking patient with the Heimlich maneuver during mealtime might have saved a life by intervening with a sense of urgency.

Healthcare workers give so much of themselves throughout the course of a typical shift at the workplace. Most members of the general public are keenly aware of the sacrifices made by the selfless people who work in the healthcare industry. Therefore, the public tends to view healthcare workers in an immensely positive light.

Now is the time to enter the healthcare industry. You can enjoy a career as a nursing assistant in as little as 7 days (one week) in the D/FW area of Texas.
