A new opportunity through Mid-Plains Community College could help people with low-incomes land a good-paying, high-demand career in the field of health care.

MPCC is part of the Project Health Education Laddering Program, aka Project HELP, which provides training and support to select individuals so they can complete a highly-skilled health-related program, improve their communication and job-seeking skills and embark on a lucrative career.

MPCC may be able to offer Project HELP financial support to low-income individuals for numerous health-related professions.

Programs that fall under consideration for Project HELP assistance include certified nursing assistant (CNA), medication aide, medical laboratory technician (MLT), certified emergency medical technician (EMT), licensed practical nurse (LPN), registered nurse (RN) and surgical technologist.

HELP assistance can include scholarships, laptops, stethoscopes, fuel vouchers, scrubs and pen lights. Tutoring, referrals, résumé workshops, mock interviews and a career coach are also available to those who qualify for the program.
