General Information 

The Nurse Assistant course has two components: the theoretical portion which will be conducted in the classroom and the supervised clinical training in an accredited and State-approved Long Term Care facility.


The courses use the American Red Cross curriculum and is taught by licensed nurses approved by the Department of Health Services and Bureau for Private Post Secondary and Vocational Education.


The 1/2 day classes take 43 days half-time (classes are Monday-Friday). Upon successful completion of the course, you will be qualified to take the State Competency Examination for NAT certification.

The educational objective of the Nurse Assistant Training Course is to prepare the nurse assistant for state certification and consequently function as an efficient, knowledgeable and safe Nurse Assistant. The course is enhanced with the comprehensive training program.
