Career Ladder Program
If you have a passion for caring for others, we can teach you the rest.
Step 1: Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA)
Employees who work with us for six months are eligible to enter our career ladder program and receive training two days per week. Bethesda will cover the full cost of the program, including coursework, materials and clinical experience necessary to start a career in this exciting field. Upon passing the certification test, you will earn a $1,000 bonus. After nine months working as a full time CNA at Bethesda, you will earn a $1,500 bonus.
Step 2: Certified Medication Technician (CMT)
After six months as a CNA with us, you are eligible to receive training to become a CMT, including insulin certification. Again, all the training and materials are provided by Bethesda. Upon certification, you will receive a pay increase commensurate with your new skills.
Step 3: Tuition Assistance
We are proud to invest in your future. All benefit-eligible Bethesda team members qualify for our tuition reimbursement program, which helps relieve some of the financial burden of starting, finishing or returning to school.
