The process of becoming a nurse aide is relatively easy if you know what to do. The only thing that is truly needed to work as a nurse aide in Oregon is a CNA certification. If you do not have any previous background in healthcare, you will need to enroll in a state-approved level-1 nurse aide training class.

group-of-studentsWhen you enroll, you must make sure that the class is approved by the Board of Nursing so that you will not have any problems when you apply for the license exam afterwards. To standardize the training offered by so many training facilities, the Board has required them to get certified before handling any students. These training classes are required to use only the curriculum that was developed by the Board. They are to offer their students a total of 150 training hours, which are divided equally into lectures/laboratory and on-the-job training. It can take you 10 to 13 weeks to complete your training.

These programs are also required to employ only those who qualify as nursing instructors to handle their students. To qualify as a nursing instructor, you must be a registered nurse with a valid license and have at least 2 years of nursing experience. One of those years must have spent working in a long-term care facility. In addition, you must also have some background experience in teaching or training adults, or supervising nurse aides. If you do not, then you should complete a course about adult education.
Once you complete your training, the next step for you is to challenge the competency exam. You must pass all the tests to get your license.  If you fail, you will be given another 2 attempts to pass. Failing for the third time means that you can no longer retake the exam, unless you complete another training class.

If you want to climb further up the ladder, there are certain advance training courses which you can enroll once you have a CNA 1 license. You can either training to become a CNA2, which already has three different classes, or you can become a certified medication aide. If you do want to pursue an advance certification, you will have to undergo another training program and another competency exam.
