Rx-Tennessee (Program Delivery Ends 3/31/2016)

The RxTN grant has provided Tennesseans with relevant training for careers in healthcare to meet industry demands, to serve dislocated and underemployed citizens, and to support access and supply tools for success. 

As the focus shifts from delivery to closeout, Columbia State is on target to exceed total institutional enrollment, completion, and employment goals!

The legacy of Columbia State’s RxTN grant participation will be the transition of course offerings to permanent institutional offices.
