Texans Can Academies students complete certified CNA program.
Texans Can Academies joined with Eastfield College to offer students an expense-free opportunity to go through a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) program. Twelve students from Texans Can Academy - Pleasant Grove and three students from Texans Can Academy - Garland have registered and completed the program. It is a seven-week long program that includes lecture, skills lab and clinical experience.
Through this certification program, students will participate in hands-on activities and training, such as learning how to inject patients properly, how to discard hazardous materials as well as many other educational activities. At the conclusion of the seven weeks of classes, the students who have completed the program will take the state test and be able to use their certification in their interview process following completion of the program. An increase of 18% in job growth for nursing assistants from 2014 to 2024 was reported by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, which is more rapid than the average predicted job growth rate in that amount of time.
Texans Can Academies believe in providing the highest quality education for all students, especially those who have struggled in a traditional high school setting. Their mission is to help students earn their high school diplomas and assist with all of their needs to further college or career paths after graduation.
