Rutland Regional Medical Center has had a long tradition of supporting staffs’ professional growth, recognizing this as a foundational investment in our ability to deliver exceptional care to our patients. The Grow Your Own LNA program was started in 2020 by Rutland Regional’s Nursing Excellence Department, in partnership with Stafford Technical Center.
Since it began, this innovative program has graduated 11 LNAs with eight more in the current spring cohort. One student, Charlene Bouzanis, a former Environmental Services Tech, was encouraged to take the course by one of her co-workers. Today, Charlene is an LNA, as are both of her daughters who also successfully completed the program.
