Nursing Assistant

LBCC offers Nursing Assistant classes that are taught at the Mennonite Village in Albany, Oregon. The class meets M-F, 8:00am -5:00pm (times may vary), for 6 weeks.  The Nursing Assistant course is a 150 hour class that meets the Oregon State Board of Nursing (OSBN) hours for Nursing Assistant training, with 75 hours of class and skills lab instruction and 75 hours of clinical experience.

The course includes instruction in basic nursing skills, restorative care, personal care skills and patient rights. Students learn to care for residents in a long term care environment. After completing the course, you will be eligible to take the CNA1 competency exam. This program is an excellent path into many health care careers.
