Nursing Assistant

Nursing Assistants are vital parts of a health care team. They are responsible for direct patient care under the supervision of nursing staff. A Nursing Assistant 1 performs duties including feeding, bathing, dressing, grooming, and moving patients.

Entry level Nursing Assistants are certified by the OSBN and must take a training course and pass a certification examination in order to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA-I). The Clatsop Community College Nursing Assistant course lasts approximately 11 weeks and is 155 total hours, with a minimum of 80 classroom hours and 75 hours of clinical experience. Individuals wishing to participate in the course will be required to pass a criminal background check, complete a 2-step tuberculosis (TB) screening, and provide evidence of measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) immunization.
