How Palm Garden Healthcare can jump start your career in nursing!

May 30, 2020

Have you always known you had the desire to serve and care for others, but you just don’t know how to afford the cost of going to school?  Palm Garden Healthcare can give you the financial assistance needed to make that happen!

During this time of uncertainty, now might be the best time to consider changing to a career in nursing!  In a healthcare facility we have many team members with specialized training, certifications and licensure but there are also many vital positions that do not require certification or licensure.

During the COVID-19 pandemic the State of Florida along with the Florida Healthcare Administration granted long term care & skilled nursing centers the unique ability to hire a non-clinical patient support position called Patient Care Attendants (PCA).  This role assists nurses and C.N.A’s with non-clinical tasks to help care for residents, which also helps to support much needed staffing challenges.

PCA’s are given specialized training from our team members on their responsibilities in the role, and if that team member is interested in furthering their skills & career Palm Garden Healthcare can offer them our C.N.A Sponsorship program!  With this program, Palm Garden Healthcare will pay for that team member to go to school, while still maintaining a full-time position with us, to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (C.N.A)!  In addition, after working for one year full-time with Palm Garden Healthcare, they are then eligible to participate in our Tuition Reimbursement program which helps to reimburse a portion of tuition costs so that they can go to school to attain their LPN or RN degrees!

In a little over one year you could go from not having a clear direction for your career to becoming a C.N.A., caring for our elder population, enriching their lives and making cherished memories with them!  Within a short time after that you could be graduating with an LPN or RN degree, where your career choices are then limitless!

To find out more about our Patient Care Attendant (PCA) opportunities in one of our fifteen centers located throughout the State of Florida please visit: www.palmgarden.com/careers.  But don’t hesitate! The PCA position is only available until the end of July 2020.  Don’t let your dreams of becoming a nurse pass you by!  Palm Garden Healthcare is here to help our team members grow their career!
