Patient Care Technician Students

On April 15th, eleven students graduated from the Patient Care Technician workforce training program, which is jointly funded by the MoSTEMWINs grant program offered through St. Louis Community College and SSM Health. They are the second group of students to graduate from this specialized training program in the past six months, which has a 96% overall successful completion rate. These graduates are ready to work as clinical partners in St. Louis-area hospitals. Congratulations to all of these focused individuals!

This accelerated non-credit training program combines five weeks of intensive classroom instruction with three weeks of clinical practice. For individuals interested in Nursing or Allied Health, this might be the entry-level program that will make their career path flourish. All instructional materials for this program are entirely grant funded.
