Nursing Assistant Program at Charity Institute of Careers

What's This About?

  • The Nurse Aide Training Programs (NATP) trains folks for long term care facilities and hospital-based skilled nursing units.

  • Competency Evaluations Programs (CEPs) make sure those who train at an approved NATP meet all the training standards.

  • Complete the evaluations, and you get added to the Louisiana Nurse Aide Registry. Sweet, right?

The Basics:

  • Full-time commitment: 2 weeks. Yup, it's all in-person!

  • You don't need a diploma, GED, or any entrance exam to join. We keep it simple.

Some Need-to-Knows:

  • A background check is a must, and it'll set you back $35.

  • Registration? That's $150.

  • Once you're done, there's a $125 Prometric Exam Fee. You can pay that whenever you want after finishing up.

How Can I Pay?

  • We got a payment plan: Half on the first day, half by the fifth day.

  • Sometimes there are Educational Assistance Grants (for specific parishes, though).

  • Consider the Meritize Private Student Loan, but note there's a $100 fee after enrolling.
