Rx Tennessee – “A Prescription for Healthcare Training in Tennessee” (Rx TN) – is designed to provide new opportunities for unemployed, underemployed or other individuals interested in the field of healthcare. One aim of the Grant is to assist Trade Act Adjustment (TAA)-eligible individuals and others in earning a certificate or degree in healthcare to increase their competitiveness in the job market. TAA-workers are dislocated employees that have lost their jobs as a result of the work going off-shore. Another aim of the grant is to meet the workforce needs of state-wide healthcare employers and industry.
