BMC Career Awareness Day March 29

12:00AM / Tuesday, March 13, 2007

Pittsfield – The Human Resources Department at Berkshire Medical Center will host its annual Career Awareness Day for anyone wishing to enter the fields of nursing, diagnostic radiology technology, pharmacy, laboratory and physical, occupational and speech therapy.

The event is also for current health care professionals who desire to further their education and qualifications. The career awareness will be held on Thursday, March 29th from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m. at Berkshire Medical Center in the Private Dining Rooms, adjacent to the cafeteria.


The open house is designed to promote awareness of careers in healthcare where job opportunities are increasing.

In light of nationwide shortages in many areas of health care, there are ample opportunities for Registered Nurses to enhance their education and for those who want to enter the fields of nursing, diagnostic radiology technology, pharmacy, laboratory and physical, occupational and speech therapy. There are several highly respected college programs in these fields in and around Berkshire County.

As part of the program, participants can learn more about degree programs at the University of Massachusetts, Berkshire Community College, Springfield Technical Community College, American International, Elms, Holyoke and Maria Colleges and McCann Technical School. Representatives from the schools will be available at the Career Awareness Day to discuss their programs.

In addition, attendees can learn more about financial assistance programs and other financial aid resources. Information will also be available about tuition reimbursement programs for nurses who wish to pursue higher degrees of education in nursing while employed by either Berkshire Health Systems or its long-term care associate Berkshire Health Care Systems.

The career awareness day is open to all and targeted to high school students and their parents, guidance counselors, current Registered Nurses wishing to seek a bachelor’s or master’s degree and all employees of Berkshire Health Systems and Berkshire Healthcare Systems wishing to further their training and careers. Refreshments will be provided and there will be prize drawings for participants.

For more information, contact the BHS Human Resources Department at 413-447-2784.
