students-in-health-care-instruction-courseAlthough the requirements to become a nursing assistant may differ from one state to another, everywhere you go, you will be required to possess a nursing assistant license if you want to work in a long-term care facility or other healthcare centers. To get a license, you must be able to get the proper training from a state-approved nurse aide program and become eligible to challenge the competency evaluation exam. The examination will test you in both skill and knowledge. If you pass all the portions of the exam, your name will be entered into the NAR and you will get your license.

If you want to further your education and training, you can choose to become a CNA 2 by completing the necessary training and passing the corresponding evaluation exam. In the state of Oregon, CNA 2 is classified into three: acute care, restorative care, and dementia care. It is possible for you to be classified under all three if you complete all the requirements.

The core curriculum for nursing assistant 2 training programs will consist of at least 30 hours of classroom and laboratory work that will already incorporate the different training concepts of safety, prevention of complications, proper communication with the patient, proper documentation, and patient care. The topics that were tackled during the nursing assistant 1 training will be further explained and discussed during the advance programs. Each of the specific classifications will handle topics that will be more focused on their specified patients.

A nursing assistant 2 license will also last about 2 years. A nursing assistant is not allowed to work with an expired license, which is why you must renew your license before it expires. An expired license may no longer be renewed. If your license has lapsed, you must retake the competency evaluation exams again. To renew your license, you must perform 400 working hours as a paid nursing assistant and maintain a good record. If you have any questions, you can call the Oregon State Board of Nursing at (971) 673-0685.
