CNA Training in OR – Oregon

If you are considering a career as a certified nursing assistant in the state of Oregon, you should know that this is one of the few states offering more than one level of certified nursing assistants. Most states offer only one level of nursing assistant certification and training.  Oregon offers two different programs:  the CNA1 and the CNA2 training courses.  Everyone who wants to work as a nursing assistant must complete the CNA1 program.  Anyone who wishes to advance their career can pursue the CNA2 training program.  This training option allows individuals to earn more income and take on more responsibilities in their career as a certified nursing assistant.

Criteria for all CNA2 training programs are set forth by the State of Oregon.  There are three primary CNA2 specialization options.  Individuals entering into the CNA2 program can specialize in acute care, dementia or restorative care.  These programs train individuals to work in a variety of healthcare settings and to work with a variety of different patients with various needs.  The CNA2 training programs will be designed in a format similar to the CNA1 programs in that students will have both classroom and clinical instruction.  Graduates of CNA2 programs will need to sit for and pass another nursing assistant competency exam.
