The course curriculum is designed by the American Nurses Association (ANA) and is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC).

The NAT course prepares students for the state certification exam to become a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA). Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a certificate from the American Red Cross.

The NAT course curriculum includes classroom instruction and hands-on training in a long-term care facility. Classroom instruction covers topics such as infection control, resident rights, safety and emergency procedures, personal care skills, and communication. Hands-on training provides students with an opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in a real-world setting.

In order to be eligible for the NAT course, students must be at least 18 years of age and have a high school diploma or equivalent. Students must also pass a criminal background check and have up-to-date immunizations.
