Community Health Workers work at the grassroots level to build the trusting and vital relationships that make them effective communicators between the community and systems of care.
Certified Nursing Assistants perform basic nursing skills in long-term care and home-care environments. As part of the 20-week Community Health Worker (CHW) program, CNA certification will be an option – this is your chance at a dual degree!
Medical Administrative Assistants perform duties essential to keeping everything running smoothly in the daily operations of a medical facility.
Senior Care CNA/CHWs perform all the core components of a Community Health Worker (CHW) with additional emphasis on the physical, emotional and developmental needs of the aging population.
