Nursing Assistant Level One offered at Umpqua Community College (UCC) is a stand-alone program and does not require the applicant to enroll in additional coursework.

The Nursing Assistant Level One program is an Oregon State Board of Nursing (OSBN) approved course. The course is a 164+ hour training course, which combines classroom, skills lab instruction, and hands-on clinical experience, designed to prepare students for the nursing assistant role in health care agencies. The course includes instruction in basic bedside nursing skills, basic restorative skill, mental health and social service needs, personal care skills, and knowledge of clients’ rights. Students will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to care for clients in long-term care and acute care facilities that are under direct care of a licensed nurse.
