Central Vermont Medical Center pilots new workforce development program to train nurses.
What: New LNA-to-LPN workforce development pilot program kick-off event
Who: The University of Vermont Health Network – Central Vermont Medical Center (CVMC), in partnership with Community Colleges of Vermont (CCV) and Vermont Technical College (VTC) and 18 current employees of CVMC enrolled in the new career development program.
Where: Central Vermont Medical Center, 130 Fisher Road, Berlin, Vt.
Conference Rooms 1 & 2
When: 10 a.m., Thursday, August 1
Why: CVMC is launching a new workforce development program aimed at addressing the shortage of nurses in Vermont. The 18-month educational program will make it easier for employed Licensed Nursing Assistants (LNAs) to become Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) by reducing the two biggest barriers to higher education: time and money.
Eighteen LNAs from the medical center will start down the path of becoming LPNs taking classes at CCV and VTC all while getting paid to earn their degree. Students in the program will continue to work part-time and receive full-time pay during the educational program. Please come and learn more about this new program.
