Education is part of the heritage of Providence St. Joseph Health. Our founders played a key role in building schools in the Western United States to ensure young people are well educated. We continue that tradition today with two educational ministries.
ProvidenceReady connects career seekers of all ages to health care careers through experiential learning and work experiences. Our program encourages participants to explore the many career opportunities that exist within health care and provides experiential opportunities, such as paid internships. Our mission is for career seekers to make better-informed career decisions and to create pathways for careers within Providence. We hope to motivate and inspire individuals on their own career pathway.
