According to the OBRA of 1987, all nursing assistants must be registered and certified to be able to work in a nursing home or a long-term care center. A nursing assistant is an individual who works under the supervision of a registered nurse and takes care of the patients by providing nursing and nursing-related care to the patients.
The certification process for a nursing assistant in Oregon starts by enrolling in a nursing assistant 1 training program that is approved by the Board of Nursing. These programs are required to use the curriculum that the Board was created (http://www.oregon.gov/OSBN/pdfs/policies/nacurr_1.pdf). To complete a program, you must meet the 75 hours of classroom lectures, 75 hours of clinical duties, and pass the final exams.
Once you complete the training, the next step for you is to apply for the state competency evaluation exam. This exam is designed to test you in both skills and knowledge. In order to get your name entered on the Nurse Aide Registry and your license, you must pass all the tests. You must pass all the tests within two years from the completion of your training. If you fail, you will be given another 2 attempts to pass.
If you pass all the tests, you will receive your license within 10 days from your exam date. Your license and status on the Registry will remain valid for up to 24 months. To maintain your status and be eligible for renewal, you must work as a paid nursing assistant under the supervision of a registered nurse for a total of 400 hours.
Getting a nursing assistant 1 license is only a stepping stone for this career path. If you want to further your knowledge and training, you can enroll in a state-certified nursing assistant 2 training program. Since there are three classes of CNA 2 (acute care, restorative care, dementia care), you will also have to choose which category you want to train in. You can also train in all three curriculums if you want. To become a nursing assistant 2, you will also have to pass the corresponding competency exams.
