“I have been fortunate to have hired many of the C.N.A. graduates from the America’s Promise Grant program. I’ve found that all of the candidates possess the knowledge, skills and compassion that I look for in a stellar candidate. They also have been coached on proper interview etiquette and many times, have already passed the State C.N.A. test and are ready to start their new career.”

What Can America's Promise Do For You?
The current economic growth, while being a benefit as a whole, has contributed to a problem that employers face across all industries – finding highly qualified, well trained candidates for employment.
Grand Rapids Community College has partnered with many West Michigan employers, community organizations, educational institutes, and other organizations with resources to address the critical need for skilled healthcare workers.
By partnering with these organizations, Grand Rapids Community College was able to receive the America’s Promise Grant from the United States Department of Labor. This grant has been instrumental in reducing the cost, while allowing recipients to receive comprehensive training in the healthcare industry.
