The Idaho CNA Grant program supports people who want to earn their certified nursing assistant certificate but cannot afford to go to school full time. A student can get their education paid by their employer, along with getting paid for the hours they spend studying and being in class — just like being on the job. The sponsoring facility is then repaid by grant. It’s a win-win.
