In a survey of more than one thousand healthcare facilities, 85% reported that they are facing a shortage of allied health workers.1 Many attributed this grim reality to factors such as the widespread healthcare worker shortage, burnout of allied health staff, and the extended time it is taking to fill these important positions.

What is Nasium Training?

Nasium Training offers customizable, accelerated employee training programs to health-based organizations that are looking to upskill and reskill their clinical and non-clinical healthcare staff. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce credits upskilling and reskilling with helping employers better attract and retain top talent.2

Implementing this type of dual approach enables health organizations to attack the shortage from two vantage points: by becoming more appealing to individuals searching for a job in allied health, and by creating a workplace environment that promotes retention of current staff.

Nasium Training offers employee training programs that promote both upskilling and reskilling efforts for roles such as:

  • Medical Assistant
  • Patient Care Technician
  • Pharmacy Technician
  • Limited Scope Radiography

Training availability and licensure/certification eligibility requirements vary by state.

Nasium Training’s 3-Pronged Approach

Nasium Training programs are created with the goal to help health organizations address and resolve their top workforce challenges. This is accomplished using a 3-pronged approach:

  1. Train. Nasium Training helps organizations close their skills gaps through customized upskilling and reskilling training programs. Upskilling provides current employees with the skills needed to be more efficient and confident in their healthcare roles. Reskilling teaches employees new skills to prepare them for a different role, enabling them to remain with the organization versus leaving for a new employer.
  2. Advance. Nasium Training programs provide employees with the resources needed for professional growth and development. They also help guide employees during the growth process. This type of creates an environment in which healthcare workers feel like they can grow and learn in a way that aligns with their own career goals.
  3. Retain. The only way to know whether your retention efforts are working is to measure your results. Nasium Training assists with this by tracking the workforce retention goals that you set, using the metrics that you define. You are always in the driver’s seat of your retention efforts. We’re there to serve as your GPS, helping you successfully navigate your way through the workforce challenges you face.

The Nasium Training Difference

Nasium Training is unique in that it is not only focused on the skills that healthcare workers need to perform their job roles today, but also on the skills that they will need to excel in these roles tomorrow. This future-forward approach is geared toward finding a more permanent solution to the workforce challenges that healthcare organizations are facing in both hiring and retention.

Nasium Training has developed a “high-touch” training solution that guides working adult learners toward enhanced career growth and development. This is accomplished in coordination with the healthcare employer, where both entities work together to maximize the learning outcomes for the employees.  

Nasium Training is also completely customizable. Different healthcare organizations face different challenges. Employee upskilling and reskilling training programs that can be modified to address your specific challenges can be invaluable by providing more specialized solutions. It also prevents a situation in which you must utilize a one-size-fits-all training program that doesn’t really fit your needs.
