Colorado Initiatives

CareForwardColorado and CareerAdvanceColorado are two initiatives by the state of Colorado that are providing more opportunities for individuals to pursue career and technical programs, as well as healthcare careers. These initiatives provide tuition funding for higher education so that more people can have access to these valuable programs and be better prepared for a career in the workforce.

Not only do these initiatives help improve the lives of students by helping them access quality education, but they also help to create a more diverse workforce with different backgrounds and experiences. By increasing access to career and technical programs, employers will gain a stronger pool of talent that is capable of meeting their needs and the needs of their communities.

These two innovative initiatives open up a world of possibilities for those who want to learn new skills or pursue a new occupation. Start your educational career here at Northeastern!

The most important thing that I see at Northeastern is that everybody is helpful. Sometimes I don't understand or I can't talk perfectly but everybody is trying to listen and understand me. Also it's hard to stay far away from family, but here I can feel more comfortable because everyone says, "Hello, how are you?", "How's it going?", to each other. That is perfect!

I have loved every minute of my experience at Northeastern. I appreciate the multiple and diverse clinical sites which helped me get a feel for all different types of nursing available to me.
