Armed Forces Re-Entry Program
Our servicemen and women possess strong leadership and other intangible skills, but many do not have the formal education, and industry recognized certification employers in the private sector seek. In fact, today, nearly 185,000 Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans are unemployed. To addressed this dilemma, the County College of Morris, The Northern New Jersey Health Professions Consortium along with the Morris County One Stop have joined together to offer returning veterans the Health Professions Opportunity Grant that provides the training and certifications necessary to reenter the workforce and specifically jobs in the health care industry.
