    Welcome Back Iniciative

    The mission of the Welcome Back Initiative is to build a bridge between the pool of internationally trained healthcare workers living in the US and the need for linguistically and culturally competent health services in underserved communities.
    The Division of Adult and Continuing Education at LaGuardia Community College is the largest CUNY continuing education division and one of the most comprehensive in the country, serving over 40,000 students who come from diverse cultures, ages, and educational and economic backgrounds. Programs are mostly non-credit and include academic courses (literacy/basic skills, GED, ESL and college preparation), vocational training, career development, and business and financial services.
    The Workforce1 Healthcare Career Center

    The Workforce1 Healthcare Career Center provides a full range of career advisement, training and job placement services for the healthcare industry to new job seekers and incumbent workers. Free training includes programs for Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and Paramedic, Licensed Practical Nurse and LPN to RN, and more. Participants receive free books and materials, and all training, upon successful completion and testing, concludes with state or national certification.
