Goodbye assembly line, hello nursing

The Auto Channel, January 12, 2009
The first class of the Michigan-based Henry Ford Health System's nursing recruitment program for displaced auto workers is underway. In partnership with Oakland University, Henry Ford developed the program to assist those seeking a career change and to address the nursing shortage. Oakland University offered places for up to 100 displaced auto workers to qualify for a pre-nursing program. Those who completed the prerequisites and who met the grade requirements then started the first nursing class in September at Henry Ford. Fifty-one students are enrolled in the program.
