Northland Red Cross Offers Red Cross CNA Scholarships

American Red Cross

The generosity and compassion of our Northland Red Cross can now be found in the form of scholarships for those planning a nursing career.  The Northland Chapter offers an accelerated program that allows graduates to begin working in half the time, and offers a scholarship to help you get started.  For a limited time, the Northland Chapter, American Red Cross will offer $200.00 need-based scholarships for area residents who register for upcoming Nursing Assistant Training in Duluth.

For more information about the scholarship or to register for the Northland Chapter Red Cross CNA training program, the Northland Chapter at (218) 722-0071.

The Northland Chapter offers an 80-hour curriculum approved by the Minnesota Department of Health that prepares students for the state exam to become Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA). The next class will be held May 16 through June 29, 2011 at the Northland Chapter office located at 2524 Maple Grove Road, Duluth, MN. The course also includes 16 hours of clinical experience at Benedictine Health Center in Duluth.

Scholarship applications must be received at the chapter by May 1, 2011.

The course fee is $800 with an optional Home Health Aide module for an additional $200. Sherman noted that following certification, CNAs are reimbursed for the balance of their tuition, if they work 90 days in a Medicare-reimbursed nursing home in Minnesota, as mandated by federal law.

If you don’t think college is for you, maybe this is something for you to check out.  Believe in yourself and follow your dreams to be a CNA, we will all benefit.
