If you are thinking of becoming a nursing assistant in Oregon, then you should start by finding a CNA 1 training program that is approved by the state’s Board of Nursing. Because of the high demand for this profession, you will have no problems looking for a training program to enroll in.
When you enroll, you will be spending a total of 75 hours for classroom lectures about the different nursing concepts and another 75 hours doing practical training in an actual clinical setting. Before you are allowed to handle the patients, you must cover 24 hours of lectures about basic care, therapeutic communication techniques, infection control, safety and emergency procedures, and assisting with ADLs. To graduate from the program, you will have to pass the final exam, which will test you in both skills and knowledge.
The completion of a training program will make you eligible to apply for the competency evaluation exam. The Headmaster Testing Service is the company that administers the testing in this state. Passing this exam is a very important step since it is one of the ways to get a CNA license and into the NAR. The exam will consist of a knowledge test, which is also offered in its oral version, and a clinical skills test. IF you want to get the oral exam or need any special considerations when taking the exam, you must inform the Registry during the submission of your application.
Nursing graduates and nursing assistant candidates who completed an approved training program in another state may apply for the exam without any additional training. They will be asked to provide proof of their education and training such as a copy of their diploma, transcript of records, or certification of completion of training.
A CNA certificate is valid for 24 months. Its expiration date will always fall on the holder’s date of birth. You will need to renew it before it expires since an expired license can only be reactivated by passing the competency exam again. You can either renew your license online (http’s: //Osborne. Oregon.
