Grant Funds Health Care Career Training at Cambridge Campus

April 16, 2013

Short-term training for veterans, TAA eligible, dislocated workers for health care careers.

Anoka-Ramsey Community College announces the Health Professions Pathways (H2P) grant that funds programs offered at the Cambridge Campus. If you are interested in obtaining credentials as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), Phlebotomy Technician, Trained Medical Aide (TMA) or Pharmacy Technician, contact Jan Pomeroy, H2P Retention Coach at Anoka-Ramsey at 763-433-1468 or jan.pomeroy@anokaramsey.edu.

The college is offering these new programs of study at the Cambridge Campus to assist veterans, incumbent and unemployed workers in achieving industry-recognized credentials in health care in one year or less. The newest program, the Pharmacy Technician certificate is a one-year program designed to meet the needs of the community by helping individuals achieve sustainable and gainful employment.

“It is a pleasure to respond to the need for pharmacy technicians in the communities of East Central Minnesota,” says Deidra Peaslee, Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs. “Those who complete this program will have the skills leading directly to employment.”

Anoka-Ramsey became part of the Health Professions Pathways (H2P) grant in October 2012. This grant includes working with a consortium of colleges across the country, including Pine Technical College, Minn.; El Centro College and Texarkana College, Texas; Ashland Community and Technical College and Jefferson Community and Technical College, Ky.; Owens Community College, Ohio; City Colleges of Chicago, Ill.; and Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, OH.

The consortium also includes partner employers and agencies that are galvanizing a national movement to dramatically improve health professions training. These groups have three major goals: 1. provide trade-impacted and low-skilled workers with adequate preparation, support and opportunities to complete postsecondary training in health professions that provide credentials aligned with job advancement; 2. expand and enhance the health care workforce with the competencies needed by industry; and 3. build the capacity of community colleges to continuously assess student and employment outcomes and use this information to improve the quality of health professions programs.

For more information about these health care career programs, please contact Jan Pomeroy at Anoka-Ramsey at 763-433-1468 or jan.pomeroy@anokaramsey.edu.
