Andrea Turner of Success was awarded Texas County Memorial Hospital’s semi-annual TCMH employee scholarship last week.
Turner, a ward clerk in the emergency department at TCMH, is enrolled in the practical nursing program at Lebanon Technology and Career Center.
Turner’s practical nursing program begins in January and upon completion of the program next December, she will be eligible for the practical nursing licensure. Turner ultimately hopes to attend receive additional training as a registered nurse to become an R.N.
The TCMH employee scholarship is a $300 scholarship given in the fall and in the spring. Any part-time or full-time employee is eligible for the scholarship if it will go toward continuing education or certification for advancement in the employee’s current job.
