This report examines fundamental changes in the CareerAdvance® program that directly relate to the experience and progress of participants through July 2013 (the end of the fourth program year) and the recruitment of Cohort 8 in April 2013. CareerAdvance® has evolved over time from a single nursing career training pathway in 2009 to four healthcare career pathways in 2013. The evolution of the program has led to many changes and has increased opportunities for program participants.
