The Continuing Education Department at Warren County Community College will be hosting an informational event focusing on career possibilities in the healthcare fields on Thursday, Feb. 2.
Health profession employment opportunities are growing rapidly and WCCC would like to provide the chance for anyone interested to learn about these exciting positions at its Health Career Information Night, which will be held at the college’s Phillipsburg Education Center, 445 Marshall Street, from 6-8 p.m.
A career as an allied healthcare professional offers secure and meaningful work, numerous opportunities for advancement and growth, and a chance to make a difference in the lives of people who need help. As the country grows older, the healthcare industry grows. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that between 2014 and 2024, 1 in 4 new jobs will be in healthcare support and healthcare practitioner occupations.
Featured career opportunities will include Certified Nursing Assistant, Medical Coder/Biller, Dental Assistant, Phlebotomy Technician, Therapeutic Massage, Pharmacy Technician, Dialysis Technician, Physical Therapy Aide, Veterinary Assistant, Pilates Instructor Certification Program, and CNA to CHHA Dual Certification. Two new offerings are Chiropractic Assistant and Histology Assistant.
Funding information for healthcare careers through the Health Professional Opportunity Grant may also be available for qualified applicants.
The event is free and open to the public but a RSVP is required. To confirm a spot, call 908-689-7613. Recent high school graduates and high school students are welcome.
