Cleveland State University, MetroHealth partner in effort to educate nurses
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.
