Nazareth Home launches Dietary Education program

Nazareth Home has announced a new Dietary Education program that will give participants the opportunity to earn more and receive career-advancing certifications. The program is the latest addition to Nazareth Home Forward, designed to provide advancement opportunities for employees. 

Through the program, Nazareth Home’s dietary team members can learn new skills and receive hands-on training. In addition, this program allows participants to earn while they learn.

Eligibility in the program is limited to internal and external hires and full or part-time Nazareth Home employees. 

Certifications in the Dietary Education program include a Food Safety Certification and Leadership Certification, both of which are in tier two of the program, along with a Food Manager Certification, which is in tier three. The completion of each certification results in a 25 cent pay raise. 

The program supports Nazareth Home’s dietary team, which plays an essential role in the elders’ care by providing delicious, well-balanced meals tailored to their specific needs and improving their quality of life. Dietary team members at Nazareth Home subscribe to the philosophy of person-centered care — ensuring that residents are at the center of all decision-making, from food selection to meal times to dining location. 

Nazareth Home Forward launched last fall and also features a Beginner CNA Apprentice program, a CNA Apprentice program, and a CMT, LPN, RN Apprentice program. For more information on Nazareth Home Forward, click here
