Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) offers grant-funded training opportunities through a health professions grant that can help you start a career in healthcare. This initiative, provided through the New Jersey Health Professions Consortium (NJHPC), is designed to reduce roadblocks and help individuals and their families obtain education, training and employment in a wide range of healthcare occupations.
