Certified Nurse Aide Exam

Northwest Louisiana Technical Community College (NLTCC) recognizes the need to facilitate certification testing for individuals who have completed approved Nurse Aide Training (NAT) programs or have followed other Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) approved alternate routes. This policy outlines NLTCC's commitment to providing testing services for a diverse range of candidates, including NLTCC students, third-party program completers, and individuals eligible for alternate routes as determined by LDH.

Applicants must attach a Louisiana Nurse Aide Training Verification form (this was given to you by the program that you completed to be eligible to sit for the exam) or your Certificate of Completion form of an approved program, or an approval to test from LDH. 

*Testing is only available on the Mansfield and Minden campuses.
