Published by: cvanadmin



Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and recommendations from the Governor of Oregon, OHCA is preparing to deliver the content of this course to registrants virtually (online). Each day will consist of self-study, online coursework, and 3-hour virtual training.

Class materials will be provided digitally to attendees. If you would like to have a hard copy of the materials shipped to you, and additional $79 fee will apply during registration. 

This course is an 18-hour training program and features a combination of live webinar training, online learning, and reading material. Even though this program is being held virtually, please plan to spend 18-20 hours completing this program, just as you would if you attended this program in person. You may begin your reading and online learning at any time.

Each Day Schedule

  • 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.: Live webinar instruction with daily instructor
  • 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.: BREAK
  • 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.: Pre-reading and online learning modules

To get the best experience from this virtual training, we recommend that you find a quiet place, free from disruption. If possible, inform co-workers of your participating in this class and ask that they minimize interruptions, so that you may fully focus on your coursework.

This three-day intensive orientation to the role of the nurse in community-based care will benefit both new and experienced assisted living and residential care nurses. Participants will not only learn the foundations and basic principles of community-based care nursing in ALF/RCF but also how to operationalize the critical roles and responsibilities of a community-based care nurse. Health service directors will understand the scope of the settings and practice, health service related regulations including medication administration and regulatory focuses, delegation, service planning and RN oversight/assessment of residents’ health care needs, quality improvement systems and documentation. Learn how to implement proven systems that support efficient, quality health care services that will help you stay on top of your health services program. Participants will be provided with in-depth study and will have opportunities for applied application of processes and tools. Learn how to prioritize your responsibilities, make the most of your time and strengthen the health services program in your community. Valuable resources and tools will be included in the program.

Your certificate of completion/CEU form will be emailed out within 2 weeks of completion of all portions of this course. OHCA will verify that we have received all the necessary assignments before emailing your certificate. Online learning modules must be completed and turned in to OHCA within 2 weeks of completing the event.
