Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Training
Congratulations on beginning your journey to become a certified nursing assistant!
Certified nursing assistants, or CNAs, are in high demand and needed across Oregon. CNAs are an important member of a health care team. CNAs work under the direction of a nurse (RN or LPN/LVN) and provide hands-on nursing care to patients, residents, clients and customers in a variety of health care settings. CNAs typically provide assistance with bathing, dressing, eating, toileting and oral care in long term care settings.
Certified nursing assistants serve a vital role in health care, and enjoy rewarding careers helping others.
