Nurse Assistant Training Programs

Nurse Assistant Training Programs

We have partnered with Linn-Benton Community College (LBCC) to offer a continuum of nurse assistant training with the goal of meeting the workforce needs of our organization and the community. We begin with the Samaritan Nurse Assistant Training Program, which prepares the student to become a CNA 1. We also offer the CNA Level 2 Acute Care Training Program which is required to work within Samaritan Health Services and may be required for other acute care facilities/hospitals.

Our courses are open to the community and those interested in working for SHS as a CNA. Current SHS employees interested in this training, as part of their career path, are encouraged to contact Professional Development for more information.  Approximately half of every class may be reserved for current or future employees, as our first priority is to meet the workforce needs of SHS. The other half of each course will be open to enrollment for the community.
