    You find the complete list of sites avalible at the State Board of Nursing website here in PDF Form(You need Adobe Acrobat): http://www.oregon.gov/OSBN/pdfs/CNA_CMAprograms.pdf

    Be careful where you pick because nursing homes need people and they will pay for your training/certification/state test so in a way, the ball is in your court..

    I am a CNA currently, have worked in Nursing Homes and Adult & Geriatric Psych. If you have any more questions, i'd be happy to help you.

    Best of luck!

    do you know of any cna programs specifically in portland?

    I took my CNA 3 years ago from cascade medical school in 4 weeks, it was about $1000, they have CNA programs it seems like at just about any community college, if you get hired at certain places sometimes they pay off your CNA class costs. I worked at legacy meridian park for about 3 months and then got into nursing school, hospitals are in my opinion a lot nicer than nursing homes to work in, i got lucky and was working there just weekends, now if you want to work in a hospital oregon you have to have your CNA2.
