Course Overview

The NATP course is designed to provide the student with the
knowledge and skills necessary to perform basic care services for a patient
(acute care setting) or resident (long-term care setting). It prepares the
student to function in the role of a Certified Nursing Assistant (BLS Code
31-1014.00) under the supervision of a registered nurse (RN) or licensed
practical nurse (LPN). This course is designed to meet the curriculum
requirements of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). The basic
nursing assistant proficiency examination is the State-approved competency
evaluation, with both written and manual skills components. The course requires
the student to complete 60 clock hours of Theory lecture, perform 100 clock hours
in a clinical setting, and successfully demonstrate 21 manual patient/resident
care skills. Satisfactory completion of the course provides eligibility to take
the CDPH established competency written examination for State certification as
a certified nursing assistant.
