Career Navigator News is a biweekly newsletter from your Career Navigator, Heather Schutte.

Youth Skills Training Grant

SSC Career Navigators are working with our members and community partners to pilot a regional Certified Nursing Assistant pathway program that delivers high school credit, offers a credential, and supports the workforce needs of our rural communities. We need feedback to validate our research on the delivery models that your high school would be in most favor of.

With the cooperating school districts, we are working to develop relationships with local skilled nursing facilities.  If you have a connection to a nursing home, long-term care facility, or hospital that could host the clinical portion of the CNA pathway, please let me know so I can connect with them!
