County of Applicant:
Lenoir
Description:

This grant will assist Lenoir Memorial Hospital with providing short-term training to address demand for certified nursing assistants by targeting unemployed or under-employed individuals in the county for training. This project will employ carefully selected trainees in a paid, 32-hour/week training period of 5-6 months, and provide hands-on healthcare experience at Lenoir Memorial Hospital, while also allowing trainees to be enrolled in the nursing assistant course at Lenoir Community College. Lenoir Memorial Hospital and other local healthcare providers have a constant demand for CNAs. A new 100-bed Veteran’s Nursing Home is scheduled to open in Lenoir County in 2011 and the 150 new positions projected for the facility will include a significant number of CNAs. This project will result in 20 entry-level certified nursing assistants.
