Basic Nurse Assistant Training (BNAT)

Basic Nurse Assistant Training (BNAT)

The BNAT curriculum offers a basic study of principles and procedures used by the nurse assistant in long-term care, home health settings and hospitals. The program focuses on basic human needs and the care of elders. Students acquire skills and concepts through hands-on clinical experiences at local health care facilities.

This is a limited enrollment program.
