Our program will also focus on building a high level of confidence in all areas of nursing practice competencies which will enable students provide optimal care to patients.


Niles College's Nurse Assistant Training Program is consistent with the Nurse Assistant Training and Assessment Program (NATAP) Model Curriculum, Revised Sept 2013.
