The New York City Small Business Services is leading the way to the recovery efforts of the city, by partnering with some institutions to provide free training in the healthcare industry, an area that is seeing a significant shortage.
“We work with the New York Alliance for Careers in Healthcare (NYACH), the City’s healthcare industry partnership, and the Workforce1 Healthcare Career Center to offer no-cost training programs that prepare New Yorkers for jobs in the healthcare field. With NYACH, we engage employers, educational institutions, training providers, and other partners in designing training programs that provide the required skills and credentials for viable healthcare career opportunities.
Some of the programs being offered are:
Citywide Nurse Residency:
The Citywide Nurse Residency program is being offered in partnership with the Greater New York Hospital Association, NYU Langone Health, and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital to implement residency programs for staff at 28 participating hospitals and is the nation’s first City-led nurse residency. The residency program will provide newly hired, first-time nurses with on-the-job training through a curriculum developed by Vizient/AACN that focuses on topics including ethics, decision making, clinical leadership, and the incorporation of research-based evidence into practice. The program also provides new nurses with support and mentorship proven to enhance nurse satisfaction, performance, and retention.
