As the driving force of opportunity today, everyone should have access to a good education to power their future and provide for later generations.

Nurses and their assistants dedicate their lives to public service and provide for local communities through their practice, but unfortunately, many prospective nursing assistants don’t have the opportunity to graduate with a degree debt-free. 

The TALSN Scholarship for Certified Nursing Assistants will support everyday people to develop and grow into a profession of nursing without the financial burden. This scholarship is in memory of my mother, who was a licensed CNA in Texas and represented the profession with grace, style, and held the highest standards regarding the care of everyone. This scholarship also exists as an extension to our ongoing list of nursing scholarships.

Single parents, those who would like to go back to school, those currently in school, or those who are generally interested in becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant are eligible. 

To apply, please write about yourself and how you plan to make an impact on the world through your pending medical career.

Azaria Brown
Kent State University at KentPickerington, OH
Hello! My name is Azaria Brown. Im 18 years old and from Columbus, Ohio. I will be going to Kent State University and will be majoring in nursing and minoring in public health. I love listening to music and reading in my free time. I plan on becoming a certified nursing assistant and work throughout nursing school so that I can gain clinical experience and pay for my tuition. I know that working as a certified nursing assistant is an under appreciated job that is very physically demanding but very clinically valuable. I believe that my work as a certified nursing assistant will be a humbling experience that will teach me valuable bedside manner skills. I also learned that I could be a travel CNA. I think it will be fun to work out of state during the summers, my work could double as a vacation. I plan to make an impact on the world through my medical career as a humanitarian midwife. I plan on becoming a midwife because of the mortality rate of African American mothers and infants., I would like to work for a variety of non-governmental organizations. I would like to work for non-governmental organizations such as Jphiego, Doctors Without Borders, Medair, and Save the Children. I have the deepest desire not only to serve African American mothers but to also serve mothers internationally. The epidemic of maternal mortality is across most continents. I plan on earning a Doctor of Nursing Practice, with a double specialty in midwifery and women’s health. This degree opens up opportunities for leadership positions in hospitals and health departments. I also plan on earning a Master of Public Health, specializing in maternal and child health. This degree will give me the opportunity to work in governmental agencies, healthcare systems, and lead in a variety of non-governmental organizations. There is a definite need for more African Americans in the medical field, especially on account of the historical systemic racism in the healthcare system that continues to this day. With my credentials, I will be able to hold leadership positions in the healthcare system and change the mortality rate of Black mothers and infants. There will be numerous opportunities for me to put my research to use. I desire to work with expectant mothers directly but, I also would like to hold leadership and managerial positions for health departments, hospitals, research institutes, and non-governmental organizations.
