Arabella Orozco at her CCA graduation

Arabella Orozco grew up speaking Spanish. It was the only language she knew when she immigrated to Denver, Colorado from Havana, Cuba with her family in the early 80s. Only knowing Spanish made school difficult.

When I was seven years old, I sat in the back of the classroom all by myself because I didn’t speak English. My aunt created notecards with translations from Spanish to English, so I could communicate with my teachers and classmates but it didn’t really help," Orozco said.

But the next time you’re driving to work, school, daycare, the grocery store, or anywhere else, really, count how many financial institutions you pass. And as you’re passing each one, ask yourself a few questions:

Are you interested in a career in healthcare?

How does studying healthcare in college and having a guaranteed job waiting for you after you graduate sound?

That’s what you’ll get if you participate in the Community College of Aurora’s new Patient Care Technician apprenticeship program. 

CCA and HealthONE, the largest healthcare system in the metro Denver area, partnered to create the program as a way to increase the number of entry-level healthcare workers in regional hospitals.
