The Nursing Assistant of the Year Scholarship program recognizes nursing assistants who provide extraordinary care to long-term care residents.

Crystal Enweiler of Rosholt, SD, the recipient of last year's scholarship, is using the $5,000 she received towards tuition for an 11-month Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) program. Crystal works as a Certified Nursing Assistant at Rosholt Care Center and is enthusiastic about the opportunity to become an LPN. Regarding her nomination, Enweiler explains that one of the nurses in her facility noticed the scholarship in a magazine and they nominated her. "It's an opportunity of a lifetime!" said Enweiler.

"We're so pleased to see the first scholarship recipient on her way to becoming an LPN," said Larry Triplett, President of Resource Systems.
