Considering a Health Care Career
As a leading health care provider, Ministry Saint Joseph's Hospital places a high value on its current employees and also recognizes the need to continue to build the workforce for the challenges of the future. We do this by offering student learning opportunities in most departments of the hospital and through innovative and collaborative partnerships with Universities and Technical Colleges throughout central Wisconsin and the upper Midwest including Mid-state Technical College, Northcentral Technical College, Viterbo, and the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse. Ministry Saint Joseph's Hospital also has its own Hospital-sponsored School of Radiology and has a partnership with the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire to provide a School of Nursing Site in Marshfield.
The Child Life Program offers three 16 week internship opportunities annually. Our staff is dually certified in Therapeutic Recreation and Child Life. The Internship Program does meet the requirements of both Child Life and/or Therapeutic Recreation Students.
Many professionals who practice in an acute care setting started as certified nursing assistants before advancing to positions as licensed practical nurses, registered nurses, nurse managers, or administrators.
The Joint Review Committee on Educational Programs in Nuclear Medicine Technology (JRCEPNMT) accredits the Nuclear Medicine Training Program at Ministry Saint Joseph's Hospital.
Ministry Saint Joseph's Hospital School of Radiography was started in 1956 with approval being granted in 1957. Marshfield Clinic became a major affiliate in 1989 in order to enhance the clinical education of the students.
