What role does a CNA play in a Prestige Care Skilled Nursing care center?

You play a direct role in the care of our residents. Important tasks of a CNA include answering patient call lights, turning or repositioning bedridden residents, documenting in our electronic medical records system (we use PointClickCare!) and providing physical support to our residents including assistance in getting out of bed, bathing, and dressing. CNAs are also responsible for reviewing resident dietary restrictions and preferences, and measuring and recording food and liquid intake.

Do you need a college degree to become a CNA?

No. We have an in-house training program called our Nursing Assistant Training Class. This is a 5-6 week class that includes the required class time as well as clinical time to get you to be a CNA. Once you are finished with our program, you can become a CNA with us at one of our skilled nursing care centers. You are required, however, to have a high school diploma or equivalent education.

Am I required to get recertified and will your company help me get my recertification?

You will need to get recertified every two years. Recertification will also help keep you updated on new treatments, best patient practices, and licensing changes. Prestige Care will cover your full cost to get your recertification.

How do I get started once I have my CNA license?

A great place for a CNA to start is skilled nursing! This is where demand for CNAs is the highest, and it’s where CNAs can have some of the greatest impact on care. This will provide you with the opportunity to improve the quality of life of many residents.

What are possible career advancement opportunities after I have obtained my CNA?

While we have many career long CNAs, we also have a direct route of becoming an LPN, RN, etc. We will also assist with the cost of tuition and help you live out your health care career goals.

I've worked with customers in other jobs, but it just wasn’t the same. The rewarding part about working at Hood River Care Center is I know I did something good for someone.
