The American Red Cross Medical Education and Testing program prepares students for one of the highest demand jobs in the state.
In the Red Cross Nurse Assistant training (NAT) program, students learn to care for residents of nursing homes, hospitals, and home healthcare organizations. This rewarding program trains students to help clients maintain their quality of life. Classes are flexible and offered day and night. The valuable skills learned in the nine-week NAT program give students a solid foundation for entering the healthcare field.
Other Medical Education and Testing programs offered by the Red Cross include a re-entry program and Instructor Training Courses.
