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.
