Atlantic Cape salutes its sustaining sponsors
ACCC’s New Health Professions Institute Opens May 23
ACCC will officially open its new Health Professions Institute at the Charles D. Worthington Atlantic City Campus, 1535 Bacharach Blvd., on Thursday, May 22. In addition, there will be an open house and tours of the campus May 19-21 from 10-11:30 a.m. and 5-6:30 p.m.
ACCC renovated existing garage space into a state-of-the-art site featuring classrooms, science and computer labs. The consolidation of existing auxiliary and allied health care training to one location will allow the school to expand its offerings. ACCC President Dr. Peter Mora called the institute a “demonstrative commitment to the health care industry.”
The institute was funded by a $1.2 million capital grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce and $1.8 million in state and Atlantic County funds. The project is also backed by Workforce Investment Board Healthcare Partnerships and executives in the health care industry.
HPI was created in response to the growing demand for skilled health care workers in the region. According to the N.J. Department of Labor, there will be 98,700 new health care jobs created in New Jersey by 2010. Nearly 10 percent of all workers in Atlantic and Cape May counties will be employed in the health care sector. HPI will help to improve opportunities for low income individuals to acquire skills for these demand occupations with high wage potential, benefits and career mobility.
Courses include Patient Care Technician, Surgical Technology Program, Medical Administrative Office Specialist, Medical Administrative Office Specialist with Internship, Phlebotomy, Certified Nurse Aide (CNA), Central Service Technician, CPR/AED/BLS, CPR, Recertification, Parish Nursing Certificate and Heartsaver CPR/AED/First Aid. The programs prepare students for the necessary certification exams and/or entry-level positions in their selected field.
