CNA Programs in Oregon

In Oregon, there are different types of CNA qualification. We’ll be looking at the CNA-1 training program, but the other available training programs follow much the same pattern, so the information that follows should help you no matter which qualification you’re aiming for.

State Approved CNA Training In Oregon

The Oregon State Board of Nursing is the body that oversees the approval of Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) training programs in the state. The good news is that there are plenty of real world and online training programs that have the OSBN’s stamp of approval, in most areas of the state, so no matter where you are, you should be close to an approved training facility. Just remember that if you plan to take the evaluation exam, and become a registered CNA, you must take an approved course – so make sure you ask.

On and Offline CNA Training in Oregon

Would be Certified Nursing Assistants in Oregon have a host of training options. Approved courses for certified nurses aides are run by high schools, vocational schools, colleges and nursing homes and other care facilities. Many also offer an online training program, that incorporates real world clinical training with internet based study, which makes it a good choice for people who are already working.

Oregon also offers reimbursement to Certified Nurse Assistant who are employed prior to training, or who find employment within 12 months of completing their training. Make sure that you enquire about your eligibility – it may just mean that you can study for free.

The Oregon CNA Training Program Syllabus

Certified nurses aides in Oregon have one of the most rigorous training programs in the country. Your studies will include a minimum of 150 hours of training, including not less than 51 hours of classroom training, 75 hours of supervised, hands on clinical training, and 24 hours of lab based studies. At the end of the program, you will have all the skills necessary to care for patients in nursing homes and long term care facilities.

During the course of the program, you will learn basic nursing skills, as well as all of the other technical, administrative and legal skills and knowledge you will need to work as a certified nurses aide anywhere in Oregon.

Evaluation and Certification for a CNA In Oregon

Like most other states, Oregon requires CNA’s to complete an evaluation before they can become registered nurses aides.

This evaluation is known as the nurse aide competency evaluation exam, and it’s a requirement if you want to register with the nursing board, or work as a CNA in the state (particularly in state, Medicare or Medicaid facilities.)

Prospects and Earnings for a CNA in Oregon

There’s expected to be an increase in the demand for trained and registered CNA’s in Oregon of around 25% over the next few years, making this a very attractive career option for people looking for scope and flexibility, as well as job security. Add to that an average salary in the state of a little over $27,000, and the minimal training you need to qualify, and this is possibly one of the most attractive healthcare jobs in Oregon at the moment.
