Scholarship for CNA I students

CNA scholarship

Students enrolled at Clatsop Community College eligible for award

Columbia Memorial Hospital is offering two scholarships that will pay for tuition and books to attend the CNA I training program at Clatsop Community College for the January 2019 starting course.

If you have always wanted to become a CNA, here is your chance. Complete the scholarship application and return it to Kelly Cope, Acute Care Services Manager, by Monday, Dec. 17, 2018. The packet can be emailed to or dropped off at the CMH’s Administration office.
