Our commitment to our employees extends beyond their current day to day roles. Whether a nurse is working toward an advanced degree or aspiring to a new career within healthcare, we want to provide the resources to help make this possible.
Omaha, NE (PRWEB) July 30, 2015
Leading healthcare staffing company Aureus Medical Group has announced partnerships with four accredited academic institutions to provide its employees with access to flexible and affordable online advanced degree programs in healthcare. American Sentinel University, Chamberlain College of Nursing, Liberty University, and Ottawa University have been named Preferred Partner schools by the medical staffing agency, which specializes in travel nursing, most all fields within allied health including travel therapy, and advanced practice.
Through its relationships with each of the preferred schools, Aureus Medical employees will be eligible for tuition discounts and other related benefits when enrolled in advanced degree and certificate programs to further their education in healthcare and acquire the skills necessary to progress into and remain competitive within their chosen fields. The partnership is an extension of Aureus Medical’s Live & Learn Tuition Reimbursement Program which provides up to $12,000 in tuition reimbursement per qualifying degrees, which encompasses nursing, various allied health specialties, healthcare administration or healthcare management, and healthcare education.
The variety of programs collectively offered by American Sentinel University, Chamberlain College of Nursing, Liberty University, and Ottawa University include RN to BSN, RN to MSN, Doctor of Nursing Practice, Nursing Education, Nursing Management, MBA in Healthcare, and more.
"Investing in our people and in the future of quality healthcare is at the core of Aureus Medical Group. We're proud to partner with a select number of respected educational institutions to offer our employees opportunities for career development and expanded learning," said Craig Wolf, vice president and general manager, Aureus Medical Group. "Our commitment to our employees extends beyond their current day to day roles. Whether a nurse is working toward an advanced degree or aspiring to a new career within healthcare, we want to provide the resources to help make this possible. We're pleased that our partner schools have joined us in this effort."
While healthcare professionals employed by Aureus may choose any school offering qualifying advanced degree programs in healthcare, discounts offered by Preferred Partner schools enable students to maximize their tuition reimbursement dollars. In addition, each institution offers degrees and certificates which are able to be earned through 100% online coursework, making returning to school convenient for working healthcare professionals, such as a travel nurse or travel therapist.
