How to offer in-demand healthcare training
Many colleges and universities have weathered the pandemic by rapidly pivoting their traditional education system to one that allows for remote learning. But, while they’re offering online learning to promote social distancing, the course length remains the same; it will take years for students to complete courses and move into the workforce. For those preparing to work in healthcare, this can mean missing an opportunity to take advantage of the highly in-demand roles we need in the field right now.
The solution? Accelerated, online training. However, building your own training program, getting the proper accreditation, and marketing to attract new students can take years of work. Instead, finding an expert, industry-recognized program that is already established can solve the problem - and attract new learners to your institution.
The benefits of online healthcare training programs
- Developed and proven coursework. Our online training includes courses in clinical, administrative, and pharmacy roles that have been developed by industry experts to prepare learners for certification, and work, within as little as 3-6 months. Instead of spending years developing your own program and waiting for approval from accrediting bodies, you can offer comprehensive and up-to-date training now.
- Easy course onboarding. Designed to allow students to independently take control of their education, our online programs are easy to start and use. With access to instructors and help through online resources, your learners can confidently dive into their program within minutes of enrollment. Even better, with no rigid enrollment dates, your learners can start whenever they’d like.
- Continuing education opportunities. Healthcare occupations often demand that workers regularly continue their education and expand their knowledge to maintain certification. By offering online programs through Penn Foster, you can provide an avenue for former students to return – offering an easy way for them to meet the requirements of their employers on their schedule.
- Rapid course completion. Completion numbers are often one way the quality of education providers is evaluated. How many students successfully graduate? How long does it take? By offering accelerated online courses, your organization can provide a rapid path for learners to enter the workforce while improving your completion and graduation rates.
