The LWTech NAC program includes on-campus classroom and laboratory instruction, as well as supervised clinical practicum at a local healthcare facility.

Graduates of this one quarter program receive the training Certificate of Completion and are then eligible to apply to and take the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program (NNAAP) Examination here at LWTech, an approved NACES testing center.
