09:00 EDT Rasmussen University and Presbyterian Homes & Services (PHS) Announce Pilot Initiative to Fill PHS Nursing Positions

May 16, 2023

News provided by Share this article Share this article Tuition reimbursement allows qualified PHS employees to pursue a practical nursing diploma at Rasmussen at little-to-no cost MINNEAPOLIS, May 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Rasmussen University and Presbyterian Homes & Services today announced a new tuition reimbursement pilot initiative to help fill the nursing pipeline. Beginning in July, qualified PHS employees will have the opportunity to pursue a Practical Nursing Diploma  at Rasmussen's Eagan campus with little-to-no tuition cost.1 The new initiative's education-to-practice model is intended to create a natural support system where PHS staff learn alongside one another and support each other through the program. "Presbyterian Homes & Services benefits from a long-standing relationship with Rasmussen University as the University's clinical degree programs align with our care model and their graduates fully qualify for licensure and are ready to work," says Kristie Moline, director of healthcare initiatives, Presbyterian Homes & Services. "Not only will these students help fill a great need for practical nurses in our care settings, but with support and education assistance available from PHS, we're there to help them achieve their career goals," adds Moline. As Minnesota's aging population grows, education-to-practice pipelines provide a key solution for elder care needs. For the first time in Minnesota history, the number of older adults (65+) is expected to surpass the population of school aged children (5-17), according to the Minnesota State Demographic Center . The State also estimates that the number of Minnesotans turning 65 this decade will be greater than the past four decades combined. "Alliances like ours with Presbyterian Homes & Services are critical to addressing the demand for qualified nurses who provide elder care," says Sharon Oglesby, dean of nursing, Rasmussen University–Eagan. "These relationships give employees an opportunity to pursue their education through Rasmussen, and then return to their facilities where they fill skilled nursing roles. It's a win-win, and I'm excited to be part of the team to help make this happen." The Presbyterian Homes & Services-Rasmussen alliance began in 2009. The relationship was formalized in 2019 when Rasmussen began offering a tuition grant of up to 20 percent2 to PHS employees across all academic programs. Through the grant, PHS employees have graduated from the diploma, associate's and bachelor's programs in nursing, as well as the physical therapy assistant and healthcare management programs.
