The implementation of the LIGHT Grant encourages movement for career ladders of opportunity. The grant encourages multiple levels of career enhancements in departments from CNA, nursing, allied health professions including therapy, social work, physicians, pharmacy, and dentists.
Recently, LECOM Institute for Successful Aging has been researching the availability of programs and funding to support individual nursing education. We have identified federal HHS programs that provide scholarships and loans to students enrolled in nursing programs. There are commitments, foundations, and institutional support to encourage enrollment at nursing colleges and universities. Some have geographic and federal restrictions. Look for future blog posts to highlight potential funding opportunities for nurse education support.
CNA classes will begin in Summer 2017. For more information, contact Tessa Ryker at (814)454-2831.
