North Central Missouri College seeks paths to improve the education of students in health-related disciplines, provide continuing education for the healthcare workforce, and increase the number of graduates ready to fill jobs in the health services/sciences profession. This commitment will be showcased through the state-wide MoHealthWINs grant program. The $20 million state-wide MoHealthWINs program will train more than 3,200 Missourians, through the Missouri Community College Association and 13 colleges, for careers in growing health care occupations, while developing innovative solutions to current and future workforce needs in the Show-Me State. Missouri colleges participating include Crowder College; East Central College; Jefferson College; Linn State Technical College; Metropolitan Community College; Mineral Area College; Moberly Area Community College; North Central Missouri College; Ozarks Technical Community College; State Fair Community College; St. Charles Community College; North Central Missouri College; and Three Rivers College.
In order to accomplish the goal, NCMC is working with the consortium to construct and implement a blended skills enrichment learning model as a means to increase the likelihood of learning success for students with basic learning skill gaps and needs. NCMC believes that adequate preparation for learning is integral to learner success, which, in turn, promotes retention and movement toward higher credentialing, enhancing the workforce and economy through a more confident, knowledgeable, skilled, and safe professional.
The developmental model paves the way for student success in nursing and pharmacy technician education/training pathways. NCMC proposes to develop an accelerated blended (online and onsite) Registered Nursing Program, utilizing a modular design, for completion in two academic semesters. Additionally, through the consortium, NCMC is providing a one semester (16 week) Pharmacy Technician program designed to prepare individuals to enter immediately into the workplace or allow for completion of an Associate of Applied Science Degree.
