A Caregiver Who Can Bring Smiles to Everyone’s Face

Posted by & filed under Assisted Living Jobs, Become a Caregiver or CNA, Caregiver CNA Duties, Caregiver Resources, CNA School, Home Health Aide Job, Live In Caregiver, Working as Caregiver CNA.

Hi all, I am here to report some extremely exciting news! Prestige Medical Solutions recently became a participant in the myCNAjobs Scholarship Program. Prestige has offered to waive tuition for 4 students this class period. One of the students, Latoya C., is convinced she will change the lives of those in need.

Latoya has been a caregiver for “three years and counting”. However, she has been yearning to become a CNA for many years because she “loves seeing the smiles on the faces of those she cares for”. Latoya does not look at becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant as a job but as “something [she] loves to do and getting paid to be a CNA is just a bonus”. Latoya plans on absorbing as much information on becoming an even better caregiver as with the aspiration to become a nurse one day.

Latoya looks forward to forming close, personal relationships with those she provides with her care. She recognizes “many people do not know what love is”. She aims to show her patients love through exceeding what they anticipated having a caregiver would be like. It is students like Latoya that the myCNAjobs Scholarship Team and Prestige Medical Solutions aspires to waive full CNA tuition for and support in their careers as caregivers.

Alex, the Program Director at Prestige Medical Solutions, stated “Prestige Medical Solutions is confident Latoya will go on to positively impact many lives and achieve great things in the healthcare field”.

Up next for Latoya is a 6 week course intensive course but in the end, Latoya will walk out with a CNA, HHA, Dementia Training, and CPR Certification. After that, she will be out making a difference in the healthcare field!

Latoya will be receiving her myCNAjobs scrubs as a “Thank You” for all she has and will do to for others!

Stay tuned! I will have more to report when Latoya has been in class for a few weeks!

A Caring EMT Shift Careers to Become More Involved in Patients’ Lives

Posted by & filed under Become a Caregiver or CNA, Caregiver CNA Duties, Caregiver Training, CNA School, Home Health Aide Job, Live In Caregiver, Working as Caregiver CNA.

Kelley, here, to fill you in on super exciting information! Prestige Medical Solutions has provided four scholarships to four outstanding caregivers via the myCNAjobs Scholarship Fund. Prestige offers a unique course that allows students to receive their CNA, HHA, Dementia Training, and CPR certification all in less than 2 months. Prestige is piloting this concept and is thrilled to have four amazing myCNAjobs Scholarship Recipients pioneer the program.

One of the scholarship recipients, Ilene W., began classes this Monday, April 18th and is thriving! Ilene is currently an EMT in NJ and has a long history in caregiving. She loves the medical field but is ready to engage in a career that is a little less fast paced and adrenaline inducing. Ilene “wants to get more involved in the lives of these patients, more so than [she] does at her current job” by becoming a certified nursing assistant.

Ilene has 3 kids that are also interested in health professions. Her daughter is currently in nursing school and her son is headed to medical school shortly. Ilene’s “calm nature, patience, empathy, and compassion” that she has attained from not only being an EMT but also a mother, make her a perfect fit for the home healthcare field.

It’s refreshing to know great caregivers like Ilene are headed into the field. Alex from Prestige Medical Solutions is certain that Ilene will excel in the CNA/HHA Program.

Prestige Medical Solutions is a vocational school located in North Plainfield, NJ which specializes in innovative career training. Some of their innovations which put Prestige Medical Solutions above the rest include online training, a career portal that guarantees a quick access to job opportunities, and professional development seminars.

Prestige Medical Solutions and myCNAjobs are thrilled to support such an amazing Caregiver through the myCNAjobs Scholarship Fund! As a thanks to all she has done for her community, myCNAjobs sent a pair of myCNAjobs scrubs to Ilene as a “Thank You”.

Tune in soon! There will be more about Ilene’s story in a few weeks!

Chasing Dreams, One CNA Class At A Time

Posted by & filed under Assisted Living Jobs, Become a Caregiver or CNA, Caregiver CNA Duties, caregiver cna interview, Caregiver Job, Caregiver Training, CNA Job, CNA School, Home Health Aide Job, Nursing Job, Working as Caregiver CNA.

Hi Everyone! It’s Chanelle with the latest news about the myCNAjobs scholarship program!

Just after the program launched, we had the pleasure of partnering with BAH Career Training located in Garland, TX. BAH Career Training awarded a full tuition scholarship to Nelleta P. to attend their CNA classes. After getting in touch with Nelleta to follow up about how the program was going thus far, she did not have enough great things to say about the program. After two weeks of attending classes, Nelleta feels, “confident and interested in the topics discussed in class.”

Nelleta attends the program for five weeks, daily classes Monday through Thursday and in that time is covering a total of 24 chapters and clinical classes. Us here at myCNAjobs are incredibly proud of Nelleta for attending every class and passing all of her exams.

So what’s next you ask? After completing the 100 hour program, Nelleta hopes to find a full-time position as a caregiver within her community and is driven to expand her education even further. She explained to me that ever since she was a little girl growing up in Jamaica, she had always dreamed of becoming a nurse. What better way to start your nursing education than to become a certified nurses assistant right?

Nelleta ended the conversation by saying how thankful and grateful she is to be given the CNA scholarship. She added, “This opportunity helped push me forward and without the scholarship I would not be able to pursue my dream. I would recommend this motivating and friendly program to anyone who is looking to become a caregiver.”

As a final word from us here at myCNAjobs, we could not be more proud of Nelleta. We can’t wait to see what you do with your talent because we know others are going to need it. For those that want to learn more about the CNA scholarship opportunity, you can fill out an application here.

We will be back with more news shortly, stay tuned!

Make a Splash in your Career

Posted by & filed under Assisted Living Jobs, Become a Caregiver or CNA, Caregiver Job, CNA Job, CNA School, Home Health Aide Job, Working as Caregiver CNA.

 

Good morning everyone, it’s Maggie here on the myCNAjobs’ scholarship team.

I have some exciting news to share with our readers out there. One of our first recipients who received a scholarship to become a CNA has almost completed her course at Larock Healthcare Academy in Columbus, OH. Neat, isn’t it? I thought so and thus why I wanted everyone to know about it as well.

Henrietta H., recently moved to Columbus where she found out that she needed to become state certified to be able to continue doing what she loves. Rather than making a hard decision to quit caring for seniors as a companion, she took the plunge and applied for the myCNAjobs Scholarship. We could not be happier that she did.

Once Henrietta finishes up her two week course and clinical hours, she will be able to sit for the State Exam. By receiving this license, numerous doors will open up for Henrietta and she will have the opportunity to further her career within the healthcare field.

I had the chance to speak with Henrietta half way through her program to gain more insight about her time at Larock Healthcare so far. This is what she told me. “There are 12 students in my class. A typical day consists of working from 8:30-2:30. In the morning we work on material from the textbooks while in the afternoon we do hands-on activities based off of the information discussed earlier in the day. The program was perfect because it allowed me to take class in the morning and afternoon and then work in the evenings. I have already recommended Larock Healthcare to my sister and friends and encouraged them to apply for a scholarship on your site.”

After asking Henrietta if she had anything to tell the myCNAjobs team, she responded saying, “Thank you so much for this opportunity, it truly has been a blessing. This scholarship has allowed me to train, graduate, and become state certified within two weeks. I am very excited to be able to begin to work within the home health aide field at government facilities in Ohio, now that I have the certification.” Henrietta, everyone at myCNAjobs is so proud of you and it is humbling to know that we are putting such dedicated, knowledgeable, and sincere caregivers out into the healthcare field.

Larock Healthcare Academy and myCNAjobs have been working closely together and will now be offering one scholarship per class session. Their next start dates are May 9th and June 16th, so for those of you who live in Columbus, OH, be sure to apply soon and submit your application here!

 

Until next time future CNAs.

A little Class Never Hurt Nobody

Hey everyone, it’s Maggie here from the Scholarship team at myCNAjobs.

Health Training Services in Texas partnered with us to award a CNA Scholarship to Janice P. Take a guess of how much she had to pay for classes? Well, Health Training Services waived the full-tuition so she attended CNA classes for… FREE! I had the opportunity to call Janice to tell her that she had been selected for the scholarship and she could not have been more excited to hear the good news. The course started soon after and she hasn’t looked back. Now, after lots of hours of studying the material to prepare for tests, Janice passed the class with flying colors; everyone here at myCNAjobs could not be more proud.

Once Janice completed her 3.5 week course, we had a chance to catch up so that I could hear about her experiences with the program. Here is what she told me. “There were eight of us taking the class and our instructor, Martin Villanueva, was excellent. He kept the class alive and piqued everyone’s interest. We took classes Monday through Friday from 7:30-11:30 A.M. and then one week of clinical for a total of 40 hours.”

So, now that Janice has completed classes, what is her next step? Well, she plans to take the state exam in a couple of weeks and continue to work in home health. Now that she has the credentials, she can ensure she is properly taking care of all her patients. Eventually, she hopes to become an LVN so that she can even further her job responsibilities.

When I asked Janice if there was anything she wants to tell the myCNAjobs team about the CNA scholarship, she said, “I was surprised but so delighted when I received that first phone call from you. I appreciate the opportunity and this scholarship helped me further my career in more ways than one”.

Well Janice, myCNAjobs is thrilled that you applied for this scholarship and we are continuously impressed with your commitment to the healthcare field. Your dedication to patients is incredible and we are excited to see what your future has in store for you.
