Cleve­land State Univer­sity, MetroHealth part­ner in ef­fort to ed­u­cate nurses

Modern Healthcare - - REGIONAL NEWS - —Ly­dia Coutre, Crain’s Cleve­land Busi­ness

Cleve­land State Univer­sity will of­fer bach­e­lor’s and master’s of sci­ence de­grees in nurs­ing for regis­tered nurses through a new part­ner­ship with MetroHealth.

The blended-de­liv­ery ap­proach will in­clude some classes taught at MetroHealth, and in-per­son and on­line course­work taught by Cleve­land State pro­fes­sors.

The goal is to en­able work­ing nurses to af­ford­ably and con­ve­niently en­hance their ed­u­ca­tion at a time when North­east Ohio has an in­creas­ing need for highly ed­u­cated nurse man­agers, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

The pro­grams will be el­i­gi­ble for em­ployee re­im­burse­ment by MetroHealth and will have some open­ings to nurses at other health sys­tems in the area.

The two in­sti­tu­tions plan to en­roll up to 30 nurses in the master’s pro­gram and up to 30 in the bach­e­lor’s pro­gram each year.
