LeadingAge Ohio invites you to attend an informational meeting at Rhodes State College, Lima, Ohio, on a Health Care Pathways Apprenticeship program the community college plans to launch. This apprenticeship offers the opportunity for you to provide a career pathway to individuals in your organization who you believe could benefit from the opportunity to advance their career in healthcare. While your organization may/may not be located in/near the Lima area, we are casting a wide net with this invitation in order to make sure we’ve reached organizations that may have employees that come from this area.
The apprenticeship program designed by Rhodes State College offers multiple pathways -- each pathway begins with the foundational knowledge of an STNA credential, CPR and Basic First Aid. Apprentices can then select a pathway that will focus on phlebotomy, medical terminology/records, and nutrition or activity director. Your employee will continue their employment with you as they complete the academic requirements of the apprenticeship program. The apprenticeship opportunity is newly available for our long-term care setting and offers you the opportunity to engage your employees in a program that has been proven to be effective for improving retention. In fact, data suggests that the retention rate for those who have completed apprenticeships is 90%!
LeadingAge Ohio is incredibly excited to be able to work with Rhodes State College on this opportunity and encourage you to send an HR or other executive to the informational session to learn more. While the apprenticeship program is administered by Rhodes, at this information session you’ll learn the responsibilities of employers to ensure the apprentices are positioned for success in the program. We anticipate filling a class of Health Care Pathways Apprentices for the January term, so please don’t miss out on this opportunity.
