Mercyhurst University – The North East Campus is announcing a new grant for working healthcare professionals looking to further their education. 

The Allied Health Partnership Grant offers employees of Saint Vincent Health System $500 per semester to pursue a degree at Mercyhurst North East. The funds will apply to all the allied health programs at the North East campus, including the licensed professional nurse (LPN) certificate program; the LPN to RN bridge program; the associate of science in nursing program; the RN to bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) program; and associate degree programs in medical laboratory technician, occupational therapy assistant, physical therapist assistant and respiratory therapist.

The university is looking to expand its Allied Health Partnership Grant program to other employers, said Travis Lindahl, associate vice president for enrollment management.

“Mercyhurst North East has always been committed to making education accessible and affordable for working professionals,” Lindahl said. “We are looking forward to connecting with more healthcare organizations in the area to give their employees this opportunity, as well.”
