Mission

FindCNAClasses is proud to present our first annual Helping Hands Scholarship Program. There are two missions for the program: the first mission is to help students that are interested in pursuing a career in healthcare reach their goal of higher education, and the second goal of the program is to encourage and inspire students that may be interested in healthcare but need the extra motivation. It is our belief that people in the healthcare field have devoted their lives to helping improve the welfare of others and we want to give back to those that give us so much. Please continue reading if this is something that peaks your interests.
