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 and
a second week at SHMC at Riverbend! 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 2014 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.
We have started the first on-line classroom portion for NA I students.
Students for this portion must know how to use their PC, and must be very self motivated. Your instructor will check in with
you often to answer questions and to check on your progress. The program is scheduled so you can get through in 5-6 weeks
with the entire course, including your classroom, lab practice sessions, CPR class, and clinical practice rotation. We will
try to do the one week of long term care and one week at the hospital as we do for the in-house classroom students. Please
be aware that you may have to do some evening clinical practice sessions at the hospital if your group is more than 8 students,
or if the class is set up for evenings. Students who take the on-line portion will not be entered into the on-line site to
begin the program until tuition is paid in full.
