Community Health Foundation Provides Support for PN Scholarships

The Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) Foundation North, Inc. is pleased to announce that the Community Health Foundation Inc. (CHF), a service delivery line of CHSGa, has donated $8,000 in scholarships to support students enrolled in OFTC’s Practical Nursing Program.

Named the CHSGa Practical Nursing Student Scholarship, the scholarships will be available summer semester to students enrolled in the Practical Nursing Program at the Dublin or Sandersville Campus. Eligibility criteria include enrollment in the Practical Nursing Program, good academic standing, and a completed Federal Application for Student Aid (FAFSA).

“This fund is being established as part of our relationship with the College, in particular to support students in the Practical Nursing Diploma Program. The CHSGa service delivery lines employ hundreds of LPNs throughout the state.

“As part of our initiative to support students’ pursuit of their entry-level careers and career paths, this scholarship fund seeks to set that process in motion,” stated Amy Abel, Director of Communications for CHSGa. “Students will be able to apply for funding to assist with books, uniforms, support for clinical experiences, and licensing exam preparations.”

The CHF is a non-profit charitable organization whose mission is to serve others through positive change by: providing ministry and support to associates during a crisis time, facilitating individual involvement in community projects, and helping to shape and model a more positive corporate culture.
