Online Nursing Assistant Training Program (ONATP)

CHSC offers Nursing Assistant Training Program classes online (ONATP). The ONATP is a hybrid training program that combines online coursework with in-person clinical training to prepare students to become knowledgeable and competent partners in providing quality patient care. Complete the 60-hour theory online at your own pace, 8 hours in person in our Skills Lab and 100 clinical hours in person in a skilled nursing facility. The ONATP involves following CDPH approved curriculum, modules, lesson plan, and clinical skills in compliance with state and federal regulations. The ONATP students will receive a completion certificate from CHSC at the end of the program and CNA certificate from CDPH when they pass the CDPH examination.

Through the program, theory and hands-on skills, you will learn how to provide basic care, such as bathing, feeding, dressing, grooming, ambulating patients, toileting and reporting health status to the supervisor nurse. You will need a computer or mobile device, camera, internet, basic computer knowledge, understanding file extensions, be able to use portable document format (PDF) and zoom.
