      Melody, Sorry for the delayed response. If you are still looking for a place to receive CNA training in Bell County, I highly suggest talking to all nursing facilities in your area. Upon a quick search I am picking up over 10 nursing homes in the area. While I do not have specific information about these places it would be beneficial to give them a call and ask if they offer training.
