It’s National Nursing Assistants Week, and Ecumen honors and thanks its nearly 1,500 direct caregivers for their dedicated care and commitment.
What a wonderful choice. As a nurse, you will be present at the high and low moments in people’s lives, from birth to death—and everything in between.
You are making a wise career move. Nurses are reaching retirement age at a pace never seen before, offering you abundant opportunities to find your place in the field of healthcare.
If you’ve helped care for an aging parent or grandparent, or watched someone struggle to maintain his or her quality of life while aging at home alone, you understand the need for well-educated, compassionate nurses in the field of senior care. It’s critical – especially in areas of rural Minnesota.
The Ecumen Scholars Program is a partnership between Ecumen, one of the nation’s top 25 largest non-profit providers of senior housing and services, and the Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies.
Ecumen is consistently honored among the “Best Place to Work” by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal and has been named one of Minnesota’s Top Workplaces by the Minneapolis Star Tribune and Minnesota Monthly Magazine.
