Qualifications include past experience in the healthcare field, completion of a Nursing Fundamentals Course from a college nursing curriculum or completion of a training program.

Guthrie is planning on hiring those interested in a healthcare career who may not have any experience or training into their Patient Care Partner role.

Arnot Health will select candidates internally to further their skills and give them an opportunity for higher paying positions within the health care field.

The Guthrie training program will span four weeks, which included three weeks of classroom skills lab training and one week of onsite clinical training.

Tuition for this program is covered by the hospital systems and employees are paid hourly while attending the training sessions. In return for the tuition compensation, the new patient care partners are required to commit one year of employment in the role they were hired into after completion of their role orientation.
