Course Description for Technical Employment (pre-requisite for the Nursing Assistant Training Program)

Technical Employment (previously Jobs First) for Nursing is designed to help students prepare for jobs in the nursing field. All students who wish to take our NATP course are required to take this class. Skills covered include dress and attire, workplace ethics, the interview process, and building a resume.

When you register for the NATP class you are enrolled in the Technical Employment class first. Once you pass this class then you move on to the NATP course.

Attendance is important to passing this class. If you miss more than more 2 days you will be dropped from the course and will not be eligible for the NATP course.
Course Description for Nurse Assistant Training Program

Formerly called CNA

Our NATP is a six-week course that prepares students to take the state board exam to become a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA). Students spend two weeks in a classroom for a theory portion, followed by four weeks of hands-on training in a clinical setting at a skilled nursing facility.

This course has very specific requirements as mandated by the California Department of Public Health. All students are required to have a minimum of 100 hours of attendance in the clinical hours in order to complete the program. 

Additionally, students who miss the first day of class or have an excessive number of absences will be dropped from the program. Students who are dropped due to attendance issues will not receive a refund.

*All NATP students must take and pass the pre-requisite class Technical Employment PRIOR to starting the NATP course.*
