During my PLF I was taught that in regards to the equation S=kblnW^na that KbxNA(moles) gets you the gas constant. Can anyone explain how and why Boltzmann constant and Avogadros number gets the gas constant.

The Boltzmann constants is in terms of per particle. Thus to get to the Boltzmann constants' units of J/K, you would just have to divide the gas constant (8.315 J/(mol*K)) by avagadro's number to get rid of the moles and get it into the per particle terms.
