Basic Nurse Assistant Training Program (BNATP)
The Basic Nurse Assistant Training Program (BNATP) prepares the student to assist the licensed professional nurse and licensed practical nurse as an integral member of the health care team in a variety of health care settings. Upon successful completion of the program the individual is eligible to take the State of Illinois Nursing Assistant Competency Examination.

The course instruction includes basic nursing skills through lecture, campus laboratory and supervised clinical experiences at a long-term health care facility. A passing grade requires the student to have achieved an average score of 80% on written examinations and to meet all laboratory and clinical requirements with a passing grade of “C” or better. Each individual who successfully passes the certification exam will then be placed on the State Registry for Health Care Workers. The BNATP will consist of 120 hours of 5 weeks training.
