SCC CAPS Healthcare Happenings...

SCC CAPS Healthcare has been rounding out the Professional Skills Bootcamp with the mock interview day and Parent/Associate Conferences. There have been several very interesting guest speakers, awe-inspiring site visits, and rotations!

Thank you to those of you that attended the associate-led conferences and participated in the interview day. We hope you enjoyed the experience if you were able to participate.

Observational Rotations

Observational rotations are an opportunity for associates to see different aspects of healthcare in a one-on-one setting. This experience really helps influence the pathway the associates will follow after CAPS and further enhance their mission in healthcare. These rotations could not be possible without our business partners providing these opportunities and sharing their expertise. We are forever grateful for their involvement with St. Charles County CAPS.

SCC CAPS AM Cross-Strand Event

AM Associates from all three strands met at Alpha and Omega Coffee Roasters in Defiance, MO to network and learn about what other associates are doing as a part of their CAPS strands. Nina DeAngelo of the O'Fallon Chamber kicked off the event with a presentation on the "Do's and Don'ts of Networking." The event ended with some fun "minute to win it" type games.
