Hospitals in portland that pay for CNA II training?

  1. Hi I'm a CNA with 2 years exp working in an ortho/neuro unit looking at moving to Portland. I'm wondering if there are any hospitals in the area that pay for the CNA 2 training in exchange for a work contract. Thanks for the help.

    Good question! I haven't heard of any, but maybe someone on here has???? I know that Portland Community College offers a CNA II program, but you have to pay out of pocket for it! I hope you find somewhere that will train you for free!

    From what I've seen, you need to already have your CNA II to get a job as a CNA in a hospital in Portland.

    The hospitals did 2 years ago when they made the switch to CNA 2, but unfourtnatly I think now you have to obtain the certification on your own
