The Certificate of Completion Rural Health Aide program is designed to prepare students for the unique workplace requirements of rural hospitals that often serve as health care centers, combining long term care with hospital care. These graduates will be cross-trained as basic nursing assistants (eligible for CNA certification as outlined by the Oregon State Board of Nursing) and as hospital unit clerks. They will be prepared to care for clients in a variety of medical settings as well as be prepared to transcribe physician’s orders, assemble charts, and perform medical clerical/medical records tasks. Much of the certificate course work can apply to nursing program requirements.
