Certified Nurse's Aide (CNA) Program
Scholarships and Grants
A note about financial aid: Because the Certified Nurse's Aide program is a non-credit program – meaning that you do not earn college credits toward a degree – standard types of financial aid are not available to you.
However, below is a partial list of programs that may be able to defer some or all of the costs of the CNA program. Some additional options can become available during the year. Please contact Dawn Poh, Health Program Assistant, for more information on what is available at this time and to obtain the necessary referral letters to begin the application process for financial assistance.
There may also be payment program options available so that you could pay for your course in installments. Please ask Dawn Poh for more information.
