Concord, NH, 1/21/2016 – The American Red Cross has received a $15,000 grant from the Lincoln Financial Foundation to assist in funding the American Red Cross (ARC) Nurse Assistant Training program in New Hampshire.
During their training, aspiring nursing assistants learn to provide quality care for residents in long-term care facilities, hospitals, home health care and hospice settings. This highly-competitive program positions students for success as graduates have a 95% pass rate on the state licensing exam.
With over 20 years of experience training both Licensed Nursing Assistant (LNA) and LNA instructors in New Hampshire, the ARC Nursing Assistant Training program is designed with input from educators, caregivers and industry representatives from across the United States. It is approved by the New Hampshire Board of Nursing and the New Hampshire Department of Education Post-Secondary Commission.
Lincoln Financial Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Lincoln Financial Group, believes in empowering people to live greater lives, which advances culture and empowers greater positive change. Its grant is part of Lincoln Financial’s annual $10 million investment in its local communities’ youth education, economic and workforce development, human well-being, and arts programs.
