Wake Tech Nurse Aide I Scholarship Program

Scholarship Program

Aware Senior Care’s Wake Tech Nurse Aide I Scholarship Program will award graduating Certified Nurse Aide I students $600 to cover the complete out-of-pocket costs incurred as part of the program.

We are offering this program to provide firsthand experience to graduating aides interested in learning more about home care.

The $600 Aware Nurse Aide I Scholars Award payments are on a graduating scale based on hours worked as follows:

  • The employee averages at least 25 hrs. a week or 50 hrs. per pay period for the length of the program.
  • The clock on the NA I PCA scholarship program starts once the employee finishes the Nurse Aide I (CNA) coursework. We do not need to wait on the successful completion of your NA I exam and your listing on the NC Nurse Aide registry.
  • Milestone Payments:
    o $200 paid after successful completion of the 90-day initial employment period
    o $200 +4 Months after 90-days and be in good employment standing
    o $200 final payment +4 months from last milestone and be in good employment standing

To qualify, students must start employment within one month of obtaining their Certified Nurse Aide certificate with the award program running for one year from the start of employment.

*Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and delays with NAI testing, we will support and encourage graduating students to work as home health aides immediately after graduation. We will not start the time clock on the scholarship program until testing is available and you achieve your listing on NC Nurse Aide registry.

Aware Senior Care provides award-winning, in-home companion care, personal care and nursing services to seniors and those who are disabled or chronically ill. We believe in taking a holistic approach with every client by considering the whole person, not just the services we can provide.

Josh Ryan, Wake Tech Nurse Aide I Graduate Review on Google:

“I’ve been working at Aware Senior Care as a caregiver for a few months. I’ve been impressed with the company not only because of the great care they provide to their clients, but also because of how they view their caregivers. I’ve worked with many senior care organizations, and I have never felt more appreciated as a caregiver. Aware truly understands that in order to empower their caregivers to provide exceptional service, they need to ensure they feel valued and supported.

“For caregivers looking for an organization to work for, Aware Senior Care will provide you with the knowledge, resources, and encouragement to be at the top of your field. Aware is an organization that continually teaches, rewards, and supports their employees, because they recognize that they succeed when you do. Aware has won numerous awards for their service to the community. It could be easy for the leaders of Aware to accept these accolades as the result of their hard work (and that is true, in part). The difference with Aware is that they understand that it’s not just their work steering the organization, but caregivers they empower daily, that have led to these recognitions.

“For anyone considering Aware Senior Care for a loved one, they should know that everyone in the organization has a heart for their work. From caregiver to CEO, everyone at Aware shows up every day with the intent to serve our clients. The founders of Aware started the company after seeing their parents go through the process of needing additional care. Through these experiences, they brought the best practices to Aware. They empower their staff to care for our clients as if they’re our own family.

“Whether you’re looking for exceptional care for a loved one, or you have the heart to provide that exceptional care, Aware Senior Care is the place for you!”
