* In September 2013, Texas began requiring CNAs to submit proof of continuing education to DADS in order to renew their certification.  Additionally in November 2013, certifications standards were changed to require Texas CNAs to pass all five sections of the national skills test in order to achieve certification.  Previously, CNAs in Texas were required to pass a Texas-specific skills test.  This likely explains the drop in the number of CNAs from 2013 to 2014.

** In October 2014 the standards were changed to require passage of only 4 of 5 sections of the national skills test in order to be certified.
