ACTION INC.’S NURSE AIDE TRAINING PROGRAM KICKS OFF IN MARCH
The program will provide free training for 12 Cape Ann residents
This spring, Action Inc. will host its latest Nurse Aide Training Program for eligible Cape Ann residents who are interested in pursuing a career in the healthcare field. The program will help 12 local students access clinical skills and obtain state certification.
Classes are offered in the evening and will take place at the Timothy L. Riley Education & Training Center, located at Action Inc. on Main Street in downtown Gloucester. The downtown location is easily accessible by bus or train.
The program aims to provide classroom and clinical skills to prepare students for the Massachusetts State Nurse Aide Certification Exam, as well as provide career development supports such as resume preparation and job fair participation.
“For many years, healthcare education has been an important component of our career training work,” said Peggy Hegarty-Steck, Action Inc.’s Executive Director. “There is a lot of demand for nurse aides, so graduates are often able to find employment quickly. This is also an excellent first step on the nursing career ladder, with pathways into a lot of different roles.”
With the decline of traditional industries, many Cape Ann residents have struggled to find living-wage employment or meaningful career paths that provide an opportunity for growth and development. Certified Nurse Aides are in high demand throughout Massachusetts, including local hospitals, nursing facilities, and home healthcare agencies here on the North Shore.
“Action Inc. continues to bring positive change to Gloucester and Cape Ann, and the Nursing Aide program is another example of their commitment to the community,” said Gloucester’s Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken. “This program aims to prepare individuals with the necessary skills to work as vital members of a healthcare delivery team. This offering is a great opportunity that local individuals should consider for a career in the growing medical field.”
Classes will begin in March and wrap up in May. Eligible participants must have a high school diploma or equivalent, a clean criminal background check, be low-to-moderate income and able to provide income verification, and be a resident of Gloucester, Rockport, Manchester, Essex, or Ipswich.
This training is made possible through funding from the City of Gloucester’s Community Development Block Grant Program.
