Acute Care Training Program
Building upon the success of the Iroquois Healthcare Association Workforce Investment Organization (IHA WIO) long-term care program, IHA applied for and received funding from the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation to extend our WIO workforce training programs to offer free online courses specifically designed for acute care and entry level hospital positions in Upstate New York.
The grant is designed to help hospitals and health systems train entry level health care workers by utilizing an online training program enabled through the provision of Google Chromebooks.
There are no costs associated with participation in this program.
