If you are a college student who has been accepted into a nursing/allied health program or a high school graduate that has received CNA certification, then you may want to take advantage of the AdventHealth Gordon Foundation Scholarship. The foundation is currently accepting applications for its nursing/allied health scholarships.
“We began offering these scholarships to help alleviate the nursing shortage the country was experiencing,” said Garrett Nudd, president of the AdventHealth Gordon Foundation and associate vice president of marketing and brand strategy for the Georgia Market. “Our hope is that we can make a small difference in the lives of the recipients, and they will partner with us in providing top-notch medical care for our community.”
The scholarships range from $500 to $2,000 for select students. Interested parties may click here to find the application. To apply, applicants must be accepted or enrolled into a nursing/allied health program or a high school graduate that has received CNA certification, maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher and agree to work for AdventHealth Gordon in an RN or allied health capacity, following passing boards, per the scholarship agreement.
