If current is passed in an electrolytic cell containing sodium nitrate, NaNO3, dissolved in water, what are the products at the anode and the cathode?

If it's dissolved in water then it is:
NaNO3 -> Na+ + NO3- right?

So you have...
Anode: NaNO3 -> Na+ + e-
Cathode : NaNO3 + e- -> NO3-

Is this correct?
