When do I sign up for my Board Test?
Oregon State Board of Nursing regulations allow us up to 10 business days following your last day of clincals to process certificates. We make every effort to have certificates ready sooner than that, but during our busier times of the year it may take the full 10 business days to process completion paperwork. Students will be notified by email when their certificates are ready to pick up at the office. We can help you sign up for your state board test when you pick up your certificate
What is the school’s class scheduling policy?
Caregiver Training Institute reserves the right to cancel, move, and reschedule a training program or class due to circumstances that are beyond our control, such as low attendance, inclement weather, power outage, or instructor illness/unavailability. The school will use all reasonable endeavors to avoid changes of this nature and will notify students as soon as the change is known prior to the start of their training program or class. If training programs or classes must be cancelled and/or rescheduled prior to the start of the training program or class, the Caregiver Training Institute will reschedule students to the next available training, with the student’s consent. Should the offered alternative not be an acceptable option for the student, a full refund of pre-paid fees for which services have not been provided will be issued.
