Nursing Apprenticeship Announced for Kentucky Long-Term Veterans Care Facilities

On Thursday, March 28, 2019, Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet Secretary Derrick Ramsey and Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs Commissioner Ben Adams signed an agreement to create a nurse assistant state registered apprenticeship program within long-term care facilities dedicated to providing healthcare services to veterans. Nurse Assistant State Registered are nursing aides who care for ill, injured, and/or disabled resident veterans within the state’s long-term healthcare facilities. Apprentices will receive first-hand on-the-job training relating to observing patients’ mental, physical and emotional conditions, along with everyday tasks and other assisted medical needs. Commissioner Adams said the apprentices will benefit both veterans and the community by establishing relationship with young people interested in health care and ensuring the best care for our veterans.
