Cleveland State University to offer bachelor's, master's degrees to MetroHealth nurses

Cleveland-based MetroHealth System is partnering with Cleveland State University to offer nurses the opportunity to obtain a bachelor's or master's degree.

Officials aim to enroll up to 30 nurses in each program, and will offer some openings in each program to nurses at other health systems in the region. Nurses enrolled in the program will also be eligible to receive tuition reimbursement.

The programs will include in-person and online coursework taught by CSU professors.

"CSU and MetroHealth both recognize the importance of expanding the number of qualified nursing professionals who can meet growing demand for quality care," Timothy Gaspar, PhD, dean of the CSU School of Nursing. "This partnership seeks to provide a pathway for current nurses to augment their credentials and clinical expertise as an added value to MetroHealth and the community as a whole. This effort is just one of several unique initiatives we are undertaking to work with our health care partners to provide the best nursing education possible in our community."
