Nurse Aide Training Program


The Nurse Aide Training Program (NATP) prepares students for health careers over a period of three academic years and exceeds the 75-hour minimum curriculum provided in other certified nursing-assistant programs. Extended laboratory practice and clinical exposure ease the transition from high school student to healthcare worker. At the end of their junior year, students qualify to sit for the Pennsylvania Nurse Aide Certification examination. Upon passing the exam, students are licensed by the state of Pennsylvania to give care to patients in healthcare and receive their CPR certification.
