As of January 1, 2019, the Oregon State Board of Nursing will no longer accept paper applications for the CNA exam and certification from students who completed an Oregon training program.  After that date, CNA exam applicants trained in Oregon must apply using our online exam application.

Apply Now for Public Board Member Openings:  The Oregon State Board of Nursing is seeking two public board members for terms that begin immediately.  To apply, visit the Governor's Boards and Commissions webpage.  For more information on the specific duties of an OSBN board member, visit the board's About Us page, or contact OSBN Communications Manager Barbara Holtry at

Seeking a CNA Volunteer for the OSBN CNA/CMA Advisory Group:  The advisory group focuses on topics relevant to CNAs and CMAs such as adequacy of training faculty, adequacy of clinical placement sites, authorized duties, curriculum content and examination pass rate trends.   The group also provides input on revisions of the Division 61, 62, or 63 sections of Oregon Administrative Rule.  If you are interested in applying for appointment to the CNA/CMA Advisory Group, please contact Debra Buck at or John Goodine at
