Certified Nursing Assistant

If you are interested in making a difference in people's lives, consider becoming a certified nursing assistant.  The West Hills College Coalinga Certified Nursing Assistant program prepares students for the field in just eighteen weeks! 

Students interested in enrolling in the WHCC Certified Nursing Assistant program must be at least 17 years of age, pass a physical examination, and submit fingerprints for FBI and DOJ clearances. 

Students studying in the West Hills' Certified Nursing Assistant program will learn laboratory skills and be provided with in-hospital training.  Upon completion of this program, students will be prepared for the certification examination. 

At this time we do not have a schedule for the 2018 NATP Program. If you wish to apply for the NATP program please wait until we have announced the schedule on this page.
