" Idaho is the fastest growing state in the united states and the treasure valley is the fastest growing part of idaho. it is, thus, imperative that we invest now in a new health science building and programs at cwi to centralize the technology and faculty needed to speed a new generation of trained providers to fill this growing demand for these critical jobs for our communities."
Nursing is one of the top-rated medical careers in this country. I have been in the nursing filed for 22 splendid years and cannot imaging a more fulfilling career. There is tremendous job satisfaction no matter where this amazing career takes you. I am convinced that you could not find this human experience anywhere else."
"This will be an outstanding investment in the Treasure Valley. Not only will it
provide a trained workforce of thousands of new healthcare workers who can fill and create jobs in our community, but also better serve the healthcare needs of our trusted friends and neighbors. The Treasure Valley is growing by leaps and bounds and we desperately need trained healthcare workers to care for our aging population. This promises to be a valuable new addition to the College of Western Idaho, our community, and our state."
"In the next 10 -20 years there is going to be a huge increase in the need for qualified health care workers. I am a registered Clinical Laboratory Scientist, retired from St. Al's, and most of my friends are retired now. Even before leaving St. Al's I saw that there just were not enough certified and licensed health care professionals to fill the positions there. Health care is an art and requires educated and compassionate people to do those jobs. CWI will be instrumental in training our future health workers."
