​*Katie L. 5/5 Stars-"They have amazing programs love the hands on learning and small class sizes. The instructors and all the staff are very helpful and have great interpersonal skills. I have absolutely enjoyed both my experiences with CNA 1 and CNA 2 courses definitely would recommend them to anyone interested in doing CNA courses."

What our students are saying!

(We do not provide any incentive or compensation for our reviews)

Test Preparation

  • Our curriculum is written by a certified state tester
  • Free lab time, after graduation for practice
  • Our students take their state board in the same classrooms they learn in

Our students currently have the highest pass rate for the Oregon State Board of Nursing CNA licensing exam in Lane, Linn and Benton county! 

*Hannah B. 5/5 Stars-"Amazing place! Everyone here is extremely supportive and helpful. I felt prepared for my job and for future. I would suggest to anyone looking to get their CNA 1 or 2!"

YES, WE ARE STILL OPEN! Our programs are still running. We are following recommendations of the CDC and the Oregon Health Authority to help protect our students, staff, residents and patients against the spread of COVID-19. Give us a call to register!

Welcome to Dare to Care Learning Center! Now in Eugene and Albany for Level one and CNA 2!

*Karlee F. 5/5 Stars-"This program is amazing! The class size is perfect for students who learn better in small settings! Everyone here is so friendly and they really work with you if you have no prior experience! Highly recommended!


We offer day classes, night classes, Albany classes, payment plans and funding resources all to help make our program more accessible! You may even qualify to get all costs reimbursed after successful completion! Call us for more info! 

As of 8/12/2020 the CDC is mandating face shields and surgical masks when in a facility. Fabric masks are not allowed. Students will be responsible for providing this for themselves. We do have them available for purchase.


Our Instructors

Our state approved instructors have a passion for teaching future health care professionals. We use hands on, compassionate and functional teaching to prepare our students to pass their state board certification exam.

Our goal is simple: Dare to Care! We dare to care for each student and dare our students to care for others!


We focus on one thing and we do it right! We are a small, locally owned training center offering Nursing Assistant 1 (CNA title comes after passing state board exam) & CNA 2 classes. Since we opened our doors in 2012, we have become the third largest school in the state of Oregon while maintaining small, intimate classes.
