Allen Community College took a big step toward creating a health occupations pathway for area high school students when its Board of Trustees approved the search for an instructional staff member.

One of the requirements for the program is to have a Registered Nurse credentialed by the state to be an instructor. The board voted Tuesday evening to revise the current position of Allied Health Coordinator to an Allied Health Specialist position, with a 5-0 vote. 

“Our present position is really kind of an office, paperwork, administrative position. This is for instruction. This person would instruct and do paperwork,” Vice President of Academic Affairs, Jon Marshall said. “We have searched for this position three times and have not found one. But on behalf of the three neighboring school districts we want to try. And we have what we believe is a good lead for this position.”
