Rx-Tennessee Technical Proposal

The Tennessee Board of Regents project "A Prescription for Healthcare Training in Tennessee (opens new window)" is designed to improve opportunities for Trade Act Adjustment (TAA) eligible workers and others in healthcare related training while at the same time meet the needs of the state-wide healthcare employers and industry. TAA workers are dislocated employees that lost their jobs as a result of the work going off-shore.

Arguably one of the most critical training priorities facing the nation is the need to prepare a highly skilled healthcare workforce.
