The Nursing Assistant program prepares students to be a certified nursing assistant (CNA).
A certified nursing assistant is a member of a healthcare team under the direct supervision of a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse. A CNA helps patients with daily living activities and other healthcare needs. Students who successfully complete NUR 103 Nursing Assistant and then obtain certification (by passing the Oregon State Board of Nursing exam and background check) can apply for work as a CNA1.
