Are you passionate about caregiving? Do you want to further your education? Is there a specific sector of healthcare that most interests you? If you answered yes to all three of these questions, myCNAjobs encourages you to apply on our Scholarship Page for the chance to receive a tuition-free CNA Scholarship. Hi all, it’s Maggie here from the scholarship team and we have had another scholarship recipient go through a STNA training program in Columbus, OH. Qurshira B. just finished up her two week course at Larock Healthcare Academy and I had the chance to talk with her after the first week of the program to touch base.

 

Qurshira loves working in healthcare and enjoys helping others who are unable to help themselves. Qurshira has been employed in this industry for several years but thought it was time to continue her education by going through a STNA program. After she passes the state exam and gains more experience, Qurshira has a strong aspiration to get into medical billing.

 

Larock Healthcare Academy provides their students with great instructors who want to see their students succeed. Qurshira and her 11 other classmates have had two weeks packed with learning new material in addition to their clinical, which provides a more hands-on experience.

 

Larock’s two-week course has ended and their next one will be starting in June. Qurshira, we are very happy that you enjoyed your time at Larock and are excited to see what your future has in store for you. MyCNAjobs wishes you the best of luck on your state exam!

 

Monthly scholarships will be given for those who are interested in going through a STNA course in Columbus, OH. We encourage you to apply for a myCNAjobs Scholarship and to research Larock Healthcare Academy.

A Passionate Caregiver Receives a myCNAjobs Scholarship and Starts Classes at Larock Healthcare

Posted by & filed under Become a Caregiver or CNA, Caregiver CNA Pay, Caregiver Training, CNA School, Working as Caregiver CNA.

Hi everyone, it is Maggie here to share with you our newest scholarship recipient, Robertha P., who is already half way done with CNA training at Larock Healthcare Academy. Recently, Robertha decided she wanted to go to a CNA school and began to research Larock Healthcare’s program. Well, luckily for Robertha, she ended up being awarded a CNA tuition-free scholarship from the myCNAjobs team to attend Larock Healthcare in Canton, OH in May. It was great to be the one to offer the scholarship to Robertha and after she heard the good news, she was overjoyed to be able to further her career in healthcare.

 

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of speaking with Robertha to find out how her first week of classes have gone and what she has learned thus far. Robertha said that she has had a great experience this past week, especially because of her instructor. Dr. Barwick has been a nurse for 40 years and has brought her work experience to the classroom when teaching all of the 12 students in the class about hospice care and long term facilities.

 

Robertha explained to me what she has done over the past week in class and it is exciting to hear that the class is paying off! Robertha said, “typically, we have a lecture in the morning where we will have a quiz over the book chapters and then practice a variety of non-medical procedures in the afternoon. It has been interesting to learn how to look for signs and diagnose patients as well as learn how to ambulate with a gait belt.”

 

Well, I am so glad to hear that Robertha is gaining such useful knowledge to be able to easily pass the state exam after the end of the course. The scholarship team here at myCNAjobs is so excited to know that we are putting such dedicated and passionate caregivers like Robertha into CNA programs.

 

The myCNAjobs team wishes Robertha the best of luck finishing up her CNA course at Larock Healthcare and on her state exam. We have all the confidence in the world that she will do great and will continue to be a great employee of Home Instead, her current place of work.

Hi Everyone! It’s Chanelle again, here to fill you in about our newest scholarship recipient, Nancy D., and her experience at Arrowhead CNA Training of Payson. Arrowhead CNA had partnered with the myCNAjobs scholarship program last month to award Nancy an opportunity to become a certified nursing assistant.

Arrowhead CNA Training of Payson awarded a full tuition scholarship to Nancy to attend their spring CNA class schedule. This week, I had the pleasure to catch up with Nancy to discuss how the program is going and she described the CNA program to be ‘one of the best things she’s ever done.’ She currently is attending the program’s night classes, along with 5 other students. Talk about some serious student and instructor interaction right?

Nancy loves to be able to work with Janet, owner of Arrowhead CNA Training of Payson, so closely and be able to attend a class where the instructor is so passionate about teaching. Nancy mentioned, “Janet is amazing, she teaches us in ways to help us better understand what we are learning. She even incorporates games and videos to help us learn.” Nancy added that the most interesting thing that she has learned so far in the program is practicing taking blood pressure.

Our main goal here at myCNAjobs is to provide a special individual the opportunity to change lives in the healthcare field. Nancy was awarded the CNA scholarship because she wanted to find a job that she would feel fulfillment with and be happy. At the moment, Nancy is working for Payson’s local Country Lane during the day, where she cares for the elderly. Then at night, she attends her clinical classes, there she gains experience with working with some mentally handicapped individuals. We know those are long days, but we are extremely proud and happy Nancy is getting so much experience with different patients!

When finishing our phone call, Nancy expressed how thankful she is to be given the opportunity. Nancy said she would recommend Arrowhead CNA training to anyone that would like to become a CNA. In fact, she already told a few friends in the community about the myCNAjobs scholarship opportunity and Arrowhead CNA Training of Payson. We appreciate you spreading the word Nancy!

As for now, here is Nancy sporting her myCNAjobs branded scrubs and be sure to check back with us soon on more news about the myCNAjobs scholarship program.

Happy first-Monday-of-May! There is no better time to share some great news about the myCNAjobs Scholarship Program.

Shelley W. was recently awarded a CNA scholarship to attend the CNA program at Colorado CNA Academy. Colorado CNA Academy is waiving the full tuition for Shelley to attend their program. Yes you read that right, the full tuition!

After being a stay at home mom for many years, Shelley decided it was time to take a new approach in the healthcare field. Shelley had felt as though she, “wanted to find something compassionate and help elderly people who are in need of assistance.” It was then when Shelley realized becoming a certified nurses assistant would be perfect for her.

It turns out for the past year, Shelley has worked as a caregiver at a local homecare agency within her community. Now after being granted this great opportunity, there is no doubt that Shelley is ready to make a difference in the healthcare community as a CNA.

Michelle Ohnemus, owner of Colorado CNA Academy, located in Golden, CO believes that Shelley will be a great addition to their program. Shelley is set to begin classes at Colorado CNA Academy on May 9th.

Our team at myCNAjobs is super excited to see all that Shelley will accomplish during her time in the program! We believe that it is truly rewarding to support such a caring individual to make an impact in our home healthcare community.

Us here at myCNAjobs will be in contact with Shelley throughout the entire duration of her time in the program, as well as help her find a job after she becomes certified. How exciting right?

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!

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

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

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.
