This professional recognition program celebrates the most innovative and effective learning programs to train, upskill, and reskill temporary and contract employees across the U.S. Awards and honorable mention distinctions are conferred in award classes by company revenue.
We are pleased to announce that our StaRN and StarTECH programs were honored with a 2020 American Staffing Association ELEVATE Award. This national awards program recognizes the most innovative and effective work-based learning programs to train, upskill, and reskill temporary and contract employees.
Since 2014, the HealthTrust Specialty Training Apprenticeship for Registered Nurses has trained 20,000-plus newly graduated nurses who otherwise would have faced substantial difficulties working in acute care environments. The program bridges the skills gap and prepares the new nurse to care for patients as soon as they enter the facility. In recent years, the program has expanded to include StaRN PLUS and StarTECH. StaRN Plus provides intensive specialty training to experienced licensed nurses and combines classroom instruction, eLearning, simulation experiences, and hands‐on clinical training at sponsoring HealthTrust client facilities. Depending on the specialty track, the program runs for 10–22 weeks and the nurses are paid during the term. StarTech is a three-week, client-paid program for certified nurse assistants that combines classroom instruction, electronic health record practice, and hands‐on clinical training in acute hospital settings. To date, approximately 1,000 CNAs have participated in StarTech.
