The CNA program at LMC was also in on the action when it came to the JobsNOW initiative and has helped many students who are interested in a job in the allied health care field get a quick jump start on their careers. “Becoming a CNA is really a stepping stone for anyone who wants to further their careers in healthcare or allied health,” says CCC Allied Health Admissions Counselor LeeAnn Lawson. ” The JobsNOW initiative has been so beneficial to those who are currently unemployed or underemployed, by helping them take that initial step into the healthcare field.”
