CNA Classes & Requirements In Oregon – State Approved & Accredited Training Programs

A Certified Nursing Assistant takes care of patients who are unable to physically look after themselves efficiently. Your day-to-day role will be to provide assistance in feeding, personal hygiene, taking medicines and giving physical therapy. A CNA works directly under the supervision of a Registered Nurse. To become a CNA, you will need to undergo a short training and become certified.

Admission Requirements

As this is a very short course compared to other nursing courses, there are also only a few requirements for admission, and they are very basic. They are more or less standardized across the country.

  • Minimum age – The minimum required age for CNA applicants in the state of Oregon is 18 years old. All you need is a copy of your birth certificate and a couple of valid IDs for reference.
  • High school diploma – The CNA program requires a basic knowledge of Science, Math, and English, and to meet this requirement, just submit a copy of your high school diploma, transcript of records, or if you are homeschooled, a copy of your GED certificate.
  • Background check – You will need to pass a medical and criminal background check. Your immunization records will be needed. You also need to present proof that you have no criminal or derogatory record.

Tuition & Fees

You can easily afford CNA programs in Oregon because they cost only around a few hundred dollars. You can also apply for financial aid, such as tuition fee discounts, scholarships, and even reimbursements. To arrange this, consult with the school you are applying to and find out what is required of you to apply for the financial aid.
