CNA’s are vital members of the health care team and the CNA program at AHS prepares students to give the highest quality of care in long term health care facilities and hospitals. CNA’s must be able to communicate and interact with patients and families and provide basic patient care safely and effectively. Students must complete 100 classroom hours and 40 clinical hours and complete the The Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) Curriculum.
