Hospital hosts school-to-career internships
Jim Moses, director of Human Resources for St. Charles Parish Hospital, Donna Palahang, director of Volunteer Services for St. Charles Parish Hospital, LeAnn Delatte, Amy DeLaune, LaWanna Davis and Harriet Sanders.
The unique two-day program offered local educators an opportunity to get a better understanding of the healthcare environment. Among the subjects covered were various careers students may be interested in pursuing, as well as the schooling required, areas of academic strength needed for particular fields of study, salary ranges and the daily demands of various jobs.
The program began with a brief orientation followed by an informative tour of the hospital. On the second day of the internship, the teachers were able to interact closely with the different departments.
The first-hand experience should enable the participants to return to their classrooms and better educate students about particular jobs in the healthcare field, as well as enhance the material being taught in their classes with an application to healthcare-related professions.
The participants for this year’s program were LeAnn Delatte, Amy DeLaune and LaWanna Davis from Destrehan High School.
