CINCINNATI – Good news to those who are aiming for careers as nurses! Now, you can avail of training without having to pay any tuition cost, while at the same time getting high quality experience. By engaging in the Mercy Neighborhood Jobs Program, there is also a good hands-on training with one of the most excellent health care systems existing today. Graduates of this course learn to become nursing assistants or STNAs.
A good example of those who benefit from the program is Marguerite Winn. She has always desired a career in healthcare, both for herself as well as for her family. She has always wanted to make a difference, and she needed to make this difference through a nursing career. She is always attentive in class, and is intent on the free partnering and training being offered by Mercy Health together with the Cincinnati-Hamilton Community Action Agency located in Bond Hill.
One thing that’s great about this training course is that the classes are scheduled at varying times during the day. This is to accommodate the busy schedules of working people. This is to attain the goal of eventually filling the current shortage in nurses being experienced in the healthcare industry.
Julia Abell from Mercy Health says that once these people become their employees, they will then be encouraged or led to the nursing career path. This means that once the STNA course is accomplished, they will be assisted towards becoming medical assistants. From that point, they will further be encouraged to finish all through the entire nursing curriculum and become a registered nurse.
This program is only one of many being conducted by Mercy Health. All of their efforts are geared towards helping the community where they have their headquarters. These efforts are widely varied, such as establishing an outdoor gym as well as bringing in mammography trucks to diagnose and help the women. Fresh produce can also be availed with the setting up of a farmer’s market.
Community Action Agency’s Mira Smith said that their agency is looking for a partner who engages in missions that are similar to theirs, particularly to build both the people and the community, as well as empowering them to become self-sufficient and prosper in abundance. These seemingly diverse efforts can be reconciled and connected with each other with this encompassing objective.
A lot of the students are residents of Bond Hill; nevertheless, Mercy Health is accepting applicants wherever they may come from. Marguerite, the student mentioned a while ago, hopes to finish occupational therapy someday, and this makes her daughter and son very proud of her. They are very excited whenever Marguerite goes to school, and it motivates and encourages her to really finish her courses. She is getting encouraged to complete schooling not just for the sake of her family, but also for herself as well.
The program is just in its infancy, and one of the aims to help students finish the course is to assist them in transportation and in helping to look after their children. Ultimately, the plan of Mercy Health is to conduct their classes four times annually and accommodate a maximum of 32 students per class. And when the students eventually finish the program, a plan exists to help them with headshots and bios, marketing the graduates to the hiring managers of Mercy Health.
