What is considered amateur status on golfs nationwide tour?

Amateur status is where a Golfer is not a professional Golfer. On the nationwide tour it would be considered as the player can win the event and trophy and the exemptions that go with it but they cannot take the prize money, as this is against the rules of amateur status. As the Nationwide tour is a professional tour there are no amateur members but some amateurs get asked to play the events in sponsors exemptions.
