NEED ASSESSMENT

In Chicago, Latinos (25% of the population)* are virtually invisible at the LPN or RN level (less than 1%)*. Primary reasons behinds those numbers are low literacy levels, low English proficiency, and personal and family employment barriers. In order to move Latinos out of, what are for them, dead-end jobs, “Carreras En Salud” must begin their work with Latinos at the Certified Nurse Assistant skill Level.

* Data source: Census’ Current Population Survey, 2000

Purpose of “Carreras En Salud”
