There is a huge demand of CNA’s all around the world. A lot of people seek a career in the field but are unable to do so due to high costs and fees that hinder their training for certification. People who seek this profession can always look for grants, scholarships, reimbursement programs and loans to help them. Because of these students who were previously in need of help can attend the Nurse Aide Training program for free.
Scholarships and Grant
Some of the scholarships that cover up the fees and expenses of CNA Certification program and exams include:
• Disability Grants,
• Scholarships for Continuing Education.
• The Brooks Dean Memorial Scholarship for students in Arizona,
• The US Department of Health and Human Services financial aids
• The Workforce Investment Act, Grants,
Other than these the government also actively gives scholarships to students who are deserving and underprivileged. CNAs who are employed in Medicare are eligible for reimbursement of the expenses and fee.
Students can always opt for loans that will cover their costs. These loans along with the interest are to be paid back after one finishes their education. Often people who are employed in nursing homes become recipients of getting their training costs reimbursed.
They are several agencies that help fund individuals who can’t pay for themselves. In return they want the CNA’s to work for them for a certain amount of time. People who become a part of such programs easily complete their education completely free as the agency pays the exam fee and the program fee. Other than this, financial departments of schools can be contacted for further information. The Nursing Board or the Nurse Aide Registry can also provide detailed information about such programs.
