New Standard of Care
Murray, Corey
Community College Journal, v81 n6 p20-24 Jun-Jul 2011
As people live longer, healthier lives and the new health care law extends benefits to millions more Americans, the need for nurses, technicians, and others to staff the nation's hospitals and medical facilities presents an enormous opportunity for workers displaced by the faltering economy. This article features Virtual Career Network that helps students launch their medical careers. Funded with a $6.6 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, the project, originally called the Health Care Virtual Career Platform, is part of a larger $14 million health care job training package authorized by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Its aim: to create an online platform where the unemployed and underemployed can better manage their career trajectories to take advantage of job opportunities in a robust and growing health care job market.
