The CCA/PSW Work & Learn program is not just another educational endeavor; it’s a transformative experience that blends classroom learning with real-world application. Participants begin their journey in a supportive classroom environment, where they receive comprehensive training and guidance from dedicated educators like Morgan Lambert and Robert Burnett.  

What sets this program apart is its unique integration with Shannex communities, where participants gain invaluable hands-on experience in a real-world setting.

Morgan Lambert, a dedicated educator within the program, expressed her pride in the growth and progress of the participants. “Rob and I are extremely proud of the progress we have seen each individual make during this 12-week program,” Lambert stated. “They have truly gone from ‘students’ to being caring, resident focused PSWs.” 

The success of the program is evident not only in the words of its educators but also in the impact observed within Shannex communities. Robert Burnett, LPN and Program and Partnership Coordinator highlighted the positive feedback received from managers when the students began their new roles.  

“We are excited to see where they are down the road,” Burnett exclaimed. “I can see many of them taking on mentor roles themselves for new team members and students alike,” said Robert. 

Indeed, the journey from student to professional is not merely about acquiring skills; it’s about embodying a mindset of dedication, compassion, and continuous learning. The Work and Learn graduates demonstrate a deep commitment to the well-being of the residents they serve. 

Armed with the knowledge and experience gained through the program, these graduates are poised to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others while forging fulfilling careers in the healthcare industry. 

By nurturing talent and fostering a culture of excellence, the program addresses the growing demand for skilled healthcare professionals and elevates the standard of care within Shannex communities and beyond.
