“It has been a pleasure working with the AHEC staff over the years on several different projects. They have been able to provide invaluable opportunities and resources for our Health Career Academy students.” -- Lisa Alessandrino, Rockland BOCES CTEC Outreach Specialist
“Catskill Hudson Area Health Education Center is one of the best things to ever happen to my nursing students. Through the mentoring program that is developing, my students have contact with nurses out in the field and have access to personal and ethical advice regarding nursing related issues as well as career advice and perspective. The participating students are very enthusiastic and appreciative for this opportunity. In the coming year, we will benefit from some of their excellent workshops and one of the staff will be a member of the CSTEP Advisory Board. They are an amazing and valuable resource, genuinely interested in promoting interest and success in health-related fields.” --Wendy A. Bohlinger, Dutchess Community College, CSTEP Coordinator
"Working with Catskill Hudson AHEC means access to many valuable resources and tools for our high school Health Careers Academy students and staff. We look forward to working with AHEC each year for our annual career expo for middle level students-- I guess we just always look forward to collaborating with AHEC because the result is always a WIN!" – Alanna Smith, Business & Industry Coordinator, Orange-Ulster BOCES, Career & Technical Education Center
I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you for your webpage (http://www.chahec.org/nursing/specialties). I came across your page while researching for some information on nursing careers. I'm thinking of going back to school for nursing, but wanted to learn more about the field before making a final decision. I really enjoyed looking through the nursing resources you compiled. They've been a great help - thanks so much. :-) --Erin J.
I wanted to tell you that I've been using your page on nursing specialties (http://www.chahec.org/nursing/specialties) for my classes at school. I'm a health teacher working on a lesson on the fields of healthcare one can get into and your page had a lot of great stuff I could use. --Mrs. Ashley H.
