The Seacole Scholars Program, named for pioneering nurse Mary Seacole, is a summer employment opportunity for high school students who have their Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) licenses. This program is run by Rhode Island Hospital's nursing department and operates as part of the Lifespan Summer Employment Program.
Each year, Lifespan hires young people to work as CNAs for seven weeks during the summer. Accepted youth work four days a week on the nursing units, and spend one day each week attending Lifespan Youth Development training.
