POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) - Three Rivers College in October will begin offering programs at no or little cost to participants that can lead to entry-level positions in the healthcare field.
The college is using funds from a MoHealthWINs grant to offer programs in Certified Nursing Assistant, Certified Medication Technician, and Certified Insulin Administration.
“There are many job openings for people with these certifications,” said Richard McGill, Three Rivers interim Dean of Career Education and Workforce Development. “Because of the MoHealthWINS funds, area residents can get affordable training for these jobs and start a career path in the healthcare field.”
The grant pays for tuition and books for participants, and in many cases there is other funding available to pay other costs such as insurance and uniforms.
