The state of Oregon has very similar requirements in place for certified nursing aide licensing and registry. Those sitting for the exam need to have completed a state approved CNA classes in Oregon, they need to be graduated and done with high school, and they need to at least have reached age 18. Oregon also requires background checks, fingerprints, medical exams, and TB testing as part of the certification training process. All of this is put in place by the state of Oregon to make sure that the nurses working in the capacity of CNA are healthy and safe individuals. All of these steps (in addition to passing the Oregon state CNA assessment) must be completed prior to their appearance on the Oregon CNA Registry. Once licensed and appearing on the registry a person may apply for CNA jobs in Portland Oregon, and throughout the state.
