Preparing for the healthcare jobs of today and tomorrow
There is a demand for nurses now and in the years to come. It’s a national challenge, but we are tackling it with a home-grown solution.
That’s why we partnered with the Kentucky Department for Public Health’s Office of Health Equity to host the second-ever Appalachian Nursing Academy (ANA). The academy was held from July 9-21 at the University of Pikeville.
- Housing at the University of Pikeville
- Three meals a day
- Interactive programming with workshops, presentations, shadowing, mentorship, tours, etc.
- $1,500 scholarship to further your education at the college or university of your choice
- Trips to see and experience regional attractions and activities
