Work to Grow Program

We know life can get busy, and with work and family pulling you in a lot of directions, it can be hard for staff to advance their education and careers. Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center has launched a Work to Grow program for nursing and certified nursing assistants (CNAs). 

  • The Nursing program includes tuition reimbursement and paid time to go to school with 16 hours of work at the hospital. 

  • The CNA program is open to current staff and community members and offers a 10-week paid course toward a CNA certificate. 

  • More than 70 people have or are in the process of going through our CNA program while we just welcomed our first participant in our nursing program.
