-- The team at Platinum Educational Group understands the struggles and obstacles that are presented to students obtaining higher education in the healthcare industries. In 2015, Platinum Educational Group launched its inaugural scholarships program geared at Emergency Medical Services (EMS) students. In 2016, the company expanded its product line to include nursing and allied health fields. It only seemed fitting to expand its scholarships program to include the hardworking and dedicated students in those fields as well.
The 2020 nursing scholarship was awarded to Williston State College student Marie Wold from Powers Lake, North Dakota. Marie was intensely involved in the family farming operation and homeschooled her four sons. For the last 15 years, Marie has been a volunteer EMT with the local ambulance and CPR/First Aid Instructor for local hospitals and businesses. Ms. Wold's thesis described the challenges faced by adult caregivers. "The demands of this rapidly expanding population and their caregiving children require a fresh look into how healthcare of the aging is accomplished,"
stated Ms. Wold. "Educational programs, support and counseling services, workplace policies, and financial assistance are essential to give this valuable resource longevity."
One of Platinum Educational Group's goals is to aid students entering healthcare industries via their annual scholarship program. "It's an honor to support these deserving students who will become leaders and mentors in their professions,"
stated Platinum CEO Jason Jensen. He added, "We look forward to continuing our annual scholarship program for years to come."
