Certified Nurse Aide In-Service



Notice to Students Regarding Licensing – CNA

Effective September 1st 2017, HB 1508 amends the Texas Occupations Code Section 53 that requires education providers to notify you a potential or enrolled student that a criminal history may make you ineligible for an occupational license upon program completion.

The following website provides links to information about the licensing process and requirements.

Should you wish to request a review of the impact of criminal history on your potential Certified Nurse Aid License prior to or during your quest for a degree, you can visit this link and request a “Criminal History Evaluation.”

This information is being provided to all persons who apply or enroll in the program with notice of the requirements as described above, regardless of whether or not the person has been convicted of a criminal offense.

Additionally, HB 1508 authorizes licensing agencies to require reimbursements when a student fails to receive the required notice.

Effective September 1, 2013, a nurse aide must complete at least 24 hours of in-service education every two years that includes training in geriatics and the care of residents with a dementia disorder, including Alzheimer’s disease. The in-service training must be completed in a nursing facility or an approved NATCEP (40 TAC S94.9(d)(1-4).

Navarro College is offering the in-service training in 8 hour segments on the Waxahachie Campus. Certificates are issued at the completion of each 8 hour class. Please refer to the schedule for a class that meets your needs.
