Sitrin's Keep Calm & Nurse On scholarship program is geared toward high school juniors and seniors. In the program, Sitrin will award selected students with a certification scholarship to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), as well as provide employment as a paid CNA at Sitrin.

Those interested in being considered for the program can download the application form. There is no GPA or experience requirement.


1. Personal essay explaining why you would be a good candidate for Sitrin’s program. Essay should be one page, double-spaced (approximately 500 words).

2. Letter of reference from an academic source (i.e., teacher or school counselor).

All application forms and required materials must be mailed to:

Sitrin Health Care Center
Attn: Brenda Cobane
2050 Tilden Avenue
PO Box 1000
New Hartford, NY 13413

After applying, selected candidates will go through an interview  process, meeting with leaders of Sitrin’s nursing department. This will allow students to learn about Sitrin’s unique services.

Those selected after this process will move onto the final scholarship phase, during which Sitrin will pay the costs associated with pursuing a CNA certification. After completion of the certification, recipients will begin work as a CNA at Sitrin.

This opportunity will provide the new CNAs with competitive salaries, life and health insurance, paid time off, no mandatory overtime, and other employee benefits. Full-time, part-time, and flexible scheduling options are available.
