COVID -19 UPDATE
1. The Texas Governor approved ONLINE CNA training.
2. The clinical requirement has been waived as visitors are not allowed in hospitals at this time during covid-19. You will not be required to go back and do the clinical portion.
3. The State testing requirement to get your CNA LICENSE has also been waived so that students can go ahead and start working right away, after they finsish their CNA PROGRAM at Legacy Career Institute. The testing centers are open so that students can take their state test to get their state license if they choose to do so. State testing will be required anyway after the waiver is lifted.
4. Why has the State Test for licensure been waived? Answer: More CNAs are needed now more than before and waiving the state test temporarily allows more CNAs to join the workforce faster as they are considered ESSENTIAL.
5. What does that mean for a CNA prospect? Answer: It means the new carriculum is very convenient and friendly to get your CNA certificate at this time, since testing and clinicals have been waived and online classes approved.
6. What shall students do in place of clinical training? Answer: Instead of the clinicals you will be required to do patient care simulations in the school labratory with manikins before you graduate. That is a total of 4 days of in person, patient care simulations at the school. This will certify and prepare you to get a job immedialtely after graduatiom, where you will receive further on the job training.
