C.O.N.I. GRANT (Community Outreach and Nursing Infrastructure Enhancement Initiative) for Allied Health Workforce

The purpose of the Albany Technical College (ATC) Community Outreach and Nursing Infrastructure (C.O.N.I.) grant is to address the educational and workforce development needs in southwest Georgia, particularly in the healthcare sector. This initiative is aimed at increasing the number of individuals entering the healthcare field, improving educational outcomes for students, and directly responding to the ongoing demand for healthcare workers. Specifically, the C.O.N.I. project intends to enhance ATC's ability to recruit, retain, graduate, and place students in healthcare careers through a variety of strategies. The ATC C.O.N.I. project aligns with the Department of Education's objectives to expand education opportunities and improve outcomes for healthcare students. It is structured to make a significant impact on the healthcare workforce in Southwest Georgia by addressing barriers to education and employment in the healthcare sector.

Strategies Include:
Strengthening Services for Healthcare Students: The project plans to improve services that assist healthcare students from enrollment to graduation. This includes activities to attract students, assist them with program navigation, and provide resources that support their academic and personal needs.

Increasing Enrollment: By implementing targeted recruitment practices, the project aims to increase enrollment in healthcare programs. This involves developing relationships within the community, providing proper information about postsecondary education opportunities, and engaging in recruitment activities.

Improving Retention Rates: The project will support students through their academic journey to ensure higher retention rates. This includes offering specialized courses on career exploration, study skills, and time management, as well as providing access to student support services.

Enhancing Graduation and Placement Rates: The goal is to increase graduation and placement rates by strengthening career services, program advisement, and providing resources to address mental health needs and other personal challenges that may impact students' ability to complete their programs.

Addressing Workforce Demands: The project is designed to produce more graduates ready to fill the existing gaps in the healthcare workforce, particularly in nursing and other healthcare areas. This is critical for meeting the needs of industry partners and addressing the regional shortage of healthcare professionals.
