Bridging the Financial Gap to Certification
Becoming a CNA requires completion of courses, passing the exam, and obtaining a state license, in addition to the time commitment that makes full-time work difficult while studying for certification. MorseLife Nursing Education Scholarships fund the training, exam fees, books, supplies, and salary for the 120 work hours missed while nursing students are in school.
These scholarships provide vital education and a career path to underserved community members. In addition, they will help ensure we can recruit and train enough qualified nursing staff to care for our seniors. Baby Boomers are aging, and people are living longer. The number of Americans 65 and older will double from 46 million to 98 million over the next 40 years.
Without enough CNAs to keep up with rising demand each year, what will happen to thousands of older adults in Palm Beach County needing CNA care? Your generous donation to support Nursing Education Scholarships is an investment in the 3,600 seniors MorseLife Cares for every day.
