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 Lemoore Certified Nursing Assistant program prepares students for the field in just two months by enrolling in our HS 61 -nurse assistant training class

Students interested in enrolling in the WHCL Certified Nursing Assistant class must be at least 17 years of age, pass a physical examination, and pass a drug test and criminal background check. They also must provide a valid TB clearance and acquire a CPR card. 

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.

Once the NATP/CNA application period states "Open" with dates included, applications may be downloaded or picked up at 555 College Ave., Lemoore, CA, in the 800 building Room 823, during office hours from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. All applications MUST be completed in their entirety prior to submitting. All applications need to be verified with the Lemoore Health Careers Office Staff.
