Bridges2Healthcare


Western was awarded the Bridges2Healthcare grant from the US Department of Labor. The purpose of the grant is to provide opportunities to explore and train for careers in healthcare.

Bridges2Healthcare

The healthcare industry is ever growing with high-wage, high-demand jobs! Our programs are set up for students to continue “career laddering” with credentials that offer room for development and growth. B2HC programs have small class sizes and individualized attention. Programs are available only for a limited time.


Who Qualifies?

First priority is given to individuals with Trade Adjustment Act benefits, dislocated workers, veterans, and individuals who qualify for Workforce Investment Act services. If spots are still available, other students may be considered for program placement on a first-come, first-served basis.
