Nursing Assistant Training Program

The Nursing Assistant Training Program (NATP) prepares students for health careers over a period of three academic years and far 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 health-care worker. At the end of junior year, students qualify to sit for the PA nursing-assistant certification examination. Once passing this exam, students are licensed by the state of Pennsylvania to give care to patients in health care and receive their CPR certification.


  • PA Nursing Assistant and CPR certification
  •  All sophomores will be Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 10 certified
