What is CovenantReady?

CovenantReady is a program where all are welcome and encouraged to join! We walk with you from the beginning of your health care career journey and continue to provide support and mentorship even after you have reached your educational goals in the industry. We prepare our caregivers for opportunities within the Covenant family by creating career pathways with the intent for advancement. This program will provide the resources for you to succeed including mentorship, scholarship opportunity, a personalized career pathway, and so much more.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, between 2019-2029, health care is predicted to be the fastest growing employment sector with an anticipated 15% job growth. For the career seeker, it is important to know that additional schooling is associated with higher pay and less unemployment over the course of one's lifetime.

For middle and high school students, CovenantReady events can demonstrate relevancy to classroom learning and may be used to meet high school graduation requirements. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to partner with teachers, counselors, and schools to bring health career exploration to students.

Why choose CovenantReady?

CovenantReady is an entry point into Covenant Health Ministries bridging the pathways between education, financial assistance/scholarships, mentorship, and YOUR career goals. You will gain experience in a health care setting, have help to navigate schools and jobs, and have access to financial assistance/scholarships to help you with the cost of school and certifications.

Career Exploration is a lifelong journey. Whether you are in high school, college, or a current Covenant Caregiver, it can feel like a particularly daunting and overwhelming task. Our goal is to provide accurate, realistic and insightful portraits of health care careers and the culture of Covenant. People gravitate to careers they know, see and experience. That is why it is imperative that we create connections between health care professionals and career seekers to accurately inform and guide them along their career pathway.

CovenantReady encourages those interested in a job shadow to participate in our career exploration opportunities. These opportunities have been specifically designed to provide you with comprehensive career exploration information, as well as to provide the most up-to-date career information. The learning is experiential, so rather than just observing health care workers, career seekers can actually try stepping into the role by using medical equipment on mannequins under the guidance of our staff. Visit our "How to get Involved" area to view some of the different opportunities!
