Earn while you learn: kickstart your career
Starting a new career path can change your life—and the opportunities in healthcare are endless.
In collaboration with the Dartmouth Health Workforce Readiness Institute, Cheshire Medical Center offers several entry-level training programs and apprenticeships in Keene. The most popular are our Licensed Nursing Assistant (LNA) and Medical Assistant (MA) Apprenticeship programs.
I get to take care of people on their worst days and make them feel better. Making a difference in someone’s life is why I get up and go to work.Savannah Cavedini, LNA, trainee
You don't pay us for training—we pay you
Not only is there no cost to the programs, but participants receive a training wage during classroom time, a good starting wage and benefits with performance increases during the apprenticeship, and a raise at the conclusion.
Build in-demand skills for a career with purpose
Best of all–participants have job security in a dynamic field and many career development opportunities throughout the healthcare industry with workforce development. Many trainees later take advantage of our tuition reimbursement and scholarships, sometimes achieving advanced nursing degrees without incurring student debt.
