We at Futuro Health want to help support you as you make your way through your program of study. We have put together a support team that will be with you every step of the way. The first person on the team? You!
Futuro Health Student (You)
Be accountable. This is ultimately your education and career so take ownership, understand requirements, and engage with your student support team along the way.
Be proactive. Keep your phone number and email address current on your Futuro Health Portal so your student support team can reach you.
Be engaged. Regularly log into your Futuro Health Portal and your Education Provider Portal. Check your email and phone for important messages and updates.
Be organized. Review the average class hours and study hours that will be required of you in your program and create a plan to be successful.
Be prepared. Review in-person requirements (if applicable) for your program and make arrangements in advance to fulfill those. (For example, Externship/Clinicals/Labs.)
Be resourceful. Reach out the moment you have questions or need help. Don’t wait until the last minute.
Futuro Health Navigator
Your Navigator will connect with you after you have been approved to participate in Futuro Health.
Your Navigator will work with you through the next steps of enrolling in a program.
Your Navigator will provide you with program information, contact information, and other resources key to your success.
Your Navigator will be your point person as you prepare to start your program and will continue through at least the first six months of your program.
Your Navigator will support your ongoing success, provide individualized coaching and goal setting, and work with you to celebrate wins and overcome obstacles.
As an adult student, you’re juggling a lot outside of school. Your Navigator can provide support with time management strategies to ensure you have an effective plan to complete your program successfully.
If you start to feel unusually stressed or overwhelmed, your Navigator can connect you with a crisis support specialist. Whether you’re struggling with food or housing insecurity, financial issues, anxiety, grief, personal safety concerns, or simply high stress due to the amount of responsibility you may have in your home life, please ask for help. You are not alone on this journey.
Education Provider (School)
Futuro Health is NOT the entity providing the education. Participants who are accepted will be able to attend tuition-free thanks to Futuro Health scholarships.
Students will need to complete an application and enrollment process with the educational provider, in addition to the process students complete at Futuro Health. Acceptance to Futuro Health does not guarantee acceptance to the college.
The education provider will be the primary point-of-contact two-weeks prior to a student’s start date and throughout the duration of the program or course.
The education provider is the expert on the program curriculum and can answer questions specific to the job and the healthcare industry.
The education provider can answer questions about coursework, grades, submitting assignments, missed assignments, passing/failing, reasonable accommodations, missing class, tutoring support, etc. (For example: If a student misses a class or wants to ask for an extension on an assignment, they need to contact the instructor and/or other student support contacts at the school).
The Educational Provider will award you a certificate (if applicable) upon successful completion of the program.
The Educational Provider is a great resource for job preparation and job placement. Programs that require externship/clinicals provide hands-on experience – the externship team could help a student land a job, and be a great resource for future job searches.
To ensure that you are successful in navigating the journey ahead, you have the option to connect to a large network of healthcare workers – through the SEIU-United Healthcare Workers West — dedicated to making sure that all communities have access to affordable, high-quality care provided by valued and respected caregivers. This community of healthcare professionals will support you through your education and training into your first (or next) job in the healthcare industry. Joining this community costs $20 per month. This is a unique benefit that sets Futuro Health apart and gets you connected to a community of healthcare workers who are dedicated to helping you advance in your career. You will work with your Futuro Health Navigator to complete the payment process should you elect to participate in this membership.You will be contacted by an SEIU-UHW staff person to participate in a new member orientation.
SEIU-UHW is a labor union of 100,000 healthcare workers who work across 185 hospitals and clinics throughout California. As part of your membership, you get priority enrollment in Futuro Health and a built-in network of healthcare professionals.
SEIU-UHW members may be able to help you navigate the job market and be a great resource in your future job search.
Futuro Health supports students throughout their educational journey, including through employment. Futuro Health has created an employer consortium that connects our graduates with employment opportunities.
As you approach the end of your program, you may hear from Futuro Health about how to connect to employment opportunities. Be on the lookout for specific communications about your pathway to a great new career!
