CNA2 Acute Care Training

Special offer!

Successful completers of the Rogue Community College Nursing Assistant Program (NA101) are eligible to take the CNA2 Acute Care Training for a tuition rate of only $200. Please complete the CNA2 Acute Care online application steps on this page.

The RCC CNA 2 course is approved by the Oregon State Board of Nursing (OSBN) and provides 40 hours of classroom and skills lab instruction and 24 hours of clinical practicum (64 hours total).  This training allows students to obtain employment in an acute care setting.

Classroom instruction consists of lecture, group activities, class discussions, and quizzes. The skills lab provides an opportunity for students to learn, practice, and demonstrate CNA 2 Acute Care Skills. The clinical practicum is held at either Providence Medford Medical Center, Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center or Asante Three Rivers Medical Center.

Students are required to attend a 2-hour orientation session beyond the 64 class/clinical hours. Students who are not registered for a class can still attend an orientation to gather more information about CNA2, get any questions answered, or prepare for an upcoming class.

Completion of Course

At the end of the training course, students will receive a recognition award and RCC will submit the necessary paperwork to the OSBN for CNA 2 certification. Once processed by the OSBN, the student's CNA 2 certification will appear on the OSBN online license verification system. The process, from graduation to online verification, takes approximately 3-4 weeks.
