Western Healthcare Practices and Communication (WHPC)

The Western Healthcare Practices and Communication (WHPC) program at CPC includes additional communication skills along with professional healthcare refresher courses for experienced international healthcare professionals who plan to work in the Western healthcare industry. The additional communication skills consist of resume writing, interviewing skills, and mock interviews.

After successfully completing our WHPC program and receiving the WHPC Certification, the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program, which is applied for through the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), will permit the nurse to work in a related field of training for a year. After one year of work, they may qualify to continue working for a second year of OPT following a short academic break to achieve their Associates Degree. Our staff attorney has historically had a very high success rate in helping our students obtain OPT approval from U.S. immigration, after which we offer assistance for them in their search for OPT approved jobs at the end of their academic studies.
