Welcome to our web site. Holy Cross is an Oregon State Board of Nursing approved nursing assistant education
program. We have a 30 Day course with clinical practice at Avamere Rehab of Junction City or
Avamere Rehab of Eugene. And we will soon be adding a class in Corvallis to do clinical practice at Corvallis Manor. Our class size is small 10-12 students.
You can locate a current schedule of our classes on the curriculum page. Early registration is encouraged as we usually have
full classes. Students do attend full time. In 2015 we will hold CNA 2 Acute Care classes every month. Our registration
process and tuition is expained below. We hope you find what you are looking for. Our Students have a very high first
time pass rate with the Oregon State Board of Nursing on their State Exam. Please be aware that you may have to do some evening clinical practice sessions

the classroom. You must purchase your own drinks as well and bring to the class. For Clinical practice sessions in LTC,
please bring your lunch as you are not allowed to leave the building! When in clinical rotation in the hospital (CNA

of the poor.
Our school is not church affiliated and welcome
all who wish to enter the nursing field, or some other medical field or to take the class and just find out if this is
a calling for you. Does this type of work suit you? Are you called to care for the ill and disabled? Come and See. Most of
the time the patients/residents give back much more that we can give them. It is very rewarding work.
