[Level 2 Nurse Aid Program]
The first step in becoming a nursing aide involves establishing eligibility to apply for the nursing aide competency evaluation program exam. There are several ways to do this, but the most common way is to enroll in an OSBN-approved training course. These courses are offered by several training institutions such as nursing homes and hospitals. If you completed your training in a different state, you can still apply for the competency exam in Oregon.
The first part of the exam is the knowledge test, which consists of 77 multiple-choice questions that will cover a wide array of topics such as safety, communications, data collection, mental health, client rights, roles and responsibilities of a nursing aide. This test is also given in an oral version. The second part is the clinical skills evaluation. In this part, the nursing aide candidate will be required to perform 5 nursing skills in front of an evaluator.
To gain entry into the Oregon Nurse Aide Registry, the candidate must pass both parts of the tests. If you pass the Headmaster Testing Company will send a notice to the Board of Nursing so your name can be added to the registry. Your license will be mailed to you and arrived at your address within 10 working days from your exam date. If you fail, you will still have 2 more attempts to pass. When retesting, you will only need to take the test that you failed in.
Your certificate is only valid for two years. During that time, you must work as a paid nursing aide for a total of 400 hours if you want to renew your license. You must also keep a clean record. Having records such as patient abuse, negligence, or misappropriation of their property, can prevent you from further working as a nursing aide.
The NAR can now be accessed online by going to http://osbn.oregon.gov/OSBNVerification/. When you visit the site, you can check your record or another nursing aide’s record by either doing a license number search or a name search. You can also try speaking with a representative of the OSBN by calling (971) 673-0685 to learn more about training and testing requirements.
