Nursing Assistant Training

The Nurse Assistant Training program offers a thorough course for students to begin a career in the medical field. Night, weekend, and intensive classes are also offered based on demand.

The course combines classroom lessons with field experience (“clinicals”) for the best training available in the NAT field. Upon graduation and the passing of the state certification exam, Nurse Assistants can work in hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted-living facilities.
