Individuals who don’t have the time to take traditional certified nursing assistant training may want to take advantage of CNA online classes in Oregon.  These type of classes allow students to continue with their current job and life priorities. 

There are no difference in the learning material used whether its online course or taking training in a classroom setting.  All schools, online or physical will teach the same subjects needed to meet the Oregon CNA requirements. 

CNA online classes in Oregon can be taken anywhere- at home, the library, a coffee shop or at any other convenient place you choose.  Generally an online course can take anywhere between four and six weeks to complete. 

Once completed you will want to take the state exam to complete your certification. The state exam can’t be completed online.  Headmaster Testing Service provides the testing for certified nursing assistants in Oregon.  Several locations throughout the state administer the examination.  

There are two parts to the nurse aide test which consists of

  • A written exam in a group setting that is multiple choice and 
  • The manual skills test.  Individuals will be tested individually in a clinical setting.  Five skills will be given to perform along with the necessary supplies and equipment needed.  Examinees will have actors serve as clients for this segment of the nurse aide exam.  Students will be observed and rated by a Registered Nurse using objective criteria.

Below we have complied a listing of all of the CNA online classes in Oregon.  If you find one that interest you, contact them directly for more information regarding the process of enrolling.
