Aspirus offers new paid CNA training program

WISCONSIN RAPIDS, WI – Aspirus Riverview Hospital in Wisconsin Rapids and Aspirus Stevens Point Hospital have partnered with Mid-State Technical College to offer a paid Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Training Program, with the first training session scheduled to begin October 10.

The accelerated program allows participants to receive the education and experience needed to become a Certified Nursing Assistant, with added financial support to help guarantee success.

When accepted into the program, participants receive paid tuition, course materials, scrubs, and a stipend that will allow them to dedicate full-time attention to training for their new career.

“Because CNAs play such a critical part of quality healthcare, Aspirus sees this as an investment in the health of our community,” said Aspirus Talent Delivery Partner, Brooke Pliska. “CNAs do such meaningful work, interacting directly with patients and aiding them with daily living activities.”

Class enrollment is limited to eight individuals per session. Once an individual has completed classes, a clinical rotation, and certification exams, they will be offered a full-time or-part-time CNA position within the Aspirus system.

“We encourage anyone who is interested in starting a career in healthcare to explore this unique opportunity,” Pliska said.
