CIHC: Who We are

FB: @cihcareers

Our blog is primarily generated to share health-related information, which we at Cardinal Institute for Health Careers believe is beneficial to the community we serve. In this week’s blog, we have decided to share about Cardinal Institute for Health Careers (CIHC) and Cardinal Testing Center (CTC). Who we are and why we do what we do.

An incident with CIHC’s President Linda Copeland’s mother would be the impetus behind the creation of CIHC. After watching her mother’s anguish following a negative experience with an untrained agency caregiver, Linda’s drive is to help prevent similar occurrences for other families was the motivation for launching her business ownership endeavor.

“Our goal is to have graduates of all programs that are compassionate, confident, and competent to meet the healthcare needs of the individuals in their care.” -Linda Copeland, President and Dean CIHC.

The CIHC website explains “Cardinal Institute for Health Careers’ is focused on providing Home Health Care educational programs to the adult residents of our extensive service area that includes: The City of Fredericksburg, and the Counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania, King George, Caroline, Henrico, Orange, Louisa, and, Fauquier. Our students have concern for their community and the elderly and disabled who want to remain safely “Aging in Place” in their homes. Placing our students and our community first is the key to being a successful enterprise. CIHC is an involved participant of the local business community’s organizations, as well as supports initiatives to improve the health and welfare of the community we serve.”

In 2016, when Linda realized there was a need for graduating Nurse Aide’s to fulfill their licensing exams without driving to Richmond or Northern Virginia, she accepted the challenge. Her desire to help others succeed began the process to become a privately owned and operated testing center.
