In December 2016, The California Endowment awarded $20,000 to Nile Sisters Development Initiative funding (NSDI) for its certified nursing assistant (CNA) vocational training program. NSDI began facilitating the program in 2012. To date, nearly 80 participants have completed the CNA program and entered the healthcare workforce.
Healthcare careers are the most promising and rapidly growing occupations nationally and statewide. Locally, professions such as certified nursing assistant constitute the largest employment in San Diego and Imperial counties. The NSDI CNA program enables refugees and other underserved populations to access skill-training for in-demand careers such as healthcare professions.
