Nursing Assistant Training opened in 2007 under the name
Quick! Nursing Assistant Training. It operated continuously
until the fall of 2014 when the founder, Lyn Chase, closed the
business to work for another company in the identical
capacity. She discovered that she missed owning and running
her own program and decided to reopen after an eight month
hiatus. Lyn remains the sole employee of Clackamas Nursing Assistant Training.
Lyn graduated from nursing school in 1974 at the age of three
(just kidding). She holds a Bachelor of Science degree with a
major in nursing and a minor in Social Science from the
University of Oregon School of Nursing, now known as OHSU. She
has worked in several facets of the nursing profession
including home health, assisted living, long term care and,
early in her career, floor nursing in two hospitals and a
stint as a nurse for a physician in a clinic. She has taught
the Nursing Assistant level one curriculum over eighty (yes,
you read that right) times. She has taught for Cascade Medical
School, Prestige Health Care, Pacific Health Care Training and Holgate Community Nursing Assistant Training, but
as of May, 2019 seventy two of
those classes were for her own company.
Lyn believes that people learn better when they feel relaxed.
She works to create an environment where discussion—rather
than lecture—takes place, and a cup of coffee or hot chocolate
is always available and allowed at any time.
