A partnership between Purdue University Global and Nebraska medical center system York General has been formed with the aim to grow nursing education within York’s workforce and increase potential staff to enter the nursing workforce.
“Purdue University Global School of Nursing is delighted to partner with York General and is committed to helping them reach their outstanding goal of becoming a premier provider in the community, known for continuous quality improvement and quality of life care for their patients,” said Melissa Burdi, Purdue Global vice president and dean of the School of Nursing. “York General’s dedication to patient care is made possible by creating avenues for academic advancement, and Purdue Global is happy to provide them with numerous pathways that fosters lifelong learning and goal attainment.”
The Purdue Global School of Nursing offers an associate’s degree program, RN-BSN, six Master of Science in Nursing specialties and Doctor of Nursing programs. Additional Purdue Global offerings include business, criminal justice, human services and psychology, among others. The partnership does not include Concord Law School or aviation programs.
York General staff and immediate family members (spouse, domestic partner, children, siblings and parents) will be afforded 20% tuition reduction for undergraduate programs, 14% reduction for graduate programs and 10% reduction for doctoral programs.
“York General continues to support education for health care providers through this agreement with Purdue University Global,” said Jenny Obermier, chief operating officer and chief nursing officer for York General. “It is important to us to provide options to those in the community and our employees at York General as they desire to pursue educational opportunities.”
