It’s been a whirlwind of a year for us at Straightaway. We grew our team, moved to a new office, and, perhaps most significantly, we signed over 20 new clients nationwide.
We have learned a lot about what it takes to run a successful in-house nurse aide training program, from the regulator’s office all the way through to the state exam. Our greatest takeaway has been that we must more directly and clearly align our content to existing state curricula to speed up the approval process. With that in mind, I’m pleased to share that Straightaway will be releasing a content update in early 2019. Existing clients will have until mid-2020 to switch to Straightaway 2.0.
While the new content will still include impactful video-based storylines, the focus will be on delivering digital content that aligns even more clearly with state curriculum requirements. This will make the content easier for regulators to approve and for existing instructors to use. An additional focus will be on streamlining our content so that students are learning more of what they need to pass the state exam.
We have more exciting product announcements in store for 2019, so stay tuned to see our next moves.
