Partner Highlight: CT League for Nursing & The Workplace
From The Workplace Mobilizer, November 2017
The Connecticut League of Nursing is a membership based organization committed to expanding educational access and opportunity for nurses, practitioners, and students. The organization partnered with the Health Career Academy (HCA) this year to provide Foundation Skills Workshops and a Caregiver School taught by working healthcare professionals. The six-module workshops provide HCA participants with the knowledge, skills, emotional and technical support to deliver basic medical care to seniors who are living independently, covering topics such as Creating a Positive Environment for Patients with Dementia, Care Coordination, Body Mechanics, and Assisting with Activates of Daily Living.
“The agency is a valuable partner to the Health Career Academy,” said Joyce Gonzales, Assistant Director at HCA. “They regularly advise our staff and participants on healthcare industry trends, related events, and opportunities for further education. We are thankful to have them as a valuable resource to folks seeking a rewarding career in the healthcare industry.”
