It showed how paramedics, medical assistants, medical laboratory technicians, physical therapist assistants and practical nurses work together in a health care setting.

Jenni Canterbury, New River CTC Public Relations Manager, said “For example, our paramedic program and our license practical nursing program, have a 100 percent job placement rate. For people looking for either to start their career or looking for a new career, these could be great places to start because of al, of the opportunities that are available there.”
