NCH ​​is recruiting for clinical positions, saying it needs help vaccinating Southwest Florida and you should consider helping and applying for a job.

Cape Coral Technical College is one place where you could register to learn the skills for this application. He says its exceptional instructors and affordability set the college apart, and because of the pandemic, its graduates will quickly find jobs due to this high demand for help.

“The pandemic has not really had an impact on our placement rates because there is a need,” said Charlie Pease, director of Cape Coral Technical College. “Lee Health has a huge need for licensed practical nurses. We have a great licensed practical nurse program for licensed practical nurses. So there was not much impact on the placement.

While the pandemic may not have impacted student placement, it has impacted the way they learn.
Inside their classrooms, you’ll see students wearing face masks and face shields and working on mannequins. The college says it places a huge emphasis on technology, relying on simulations to help students complete their clinical studies.

“One of the things they do a little differently is that their clinics are mocked,” Pease said. “So we have a lot of high tech software through a program called ATI that they use. And the lab is completely simulated. They always go in there and work together, but in fact, they are not in the hospitals to do their clinic. “

Pease says Cape Coral Tech actually has a 100% placement rate for graduate students.
