Ephraim McDowell Health and the Campbellsville University School of Nursing have partnered to offer a new program called the Healthcare Educational Learning Program, in which selected participants will be paid while completing a qualified nursing or allied health program. The new program will begin with the nursing program at CU and will include other programs in the future.
EMH will accept applications from internal and external candidates following their normal hiring process. Program participants will be paid up to 24 hours per week for attendance in class, in the lab, and for required clinical rotations and will be required to work 12 hours per week at EMH.
In addition to the income and work experience gained through the HELP program, participants will be eligible to receive full-time benefits for themselves and their dependents. Acceptance into the program will require the completion of a FAFSA application and a two-year work commitment at EMH.
“We are thrilled to partner with Campbellsville University,” said Libby Mayes, vice president of human resources, Ephraim McDowell Health. “This is one of the ways Ephraim McDowell Health is addressing the shortage of healthcare workers while giving individuals the opportunity to have income and benefits while pursuing rewarding careers in healthcare. .”
“The University of Campbellsville School of Nursing is honored to partner with Ephraim McDowell Health,” said Dr. Michele Dickens, Dean of the University of Campbellsville School of Nursing. “The partnership will help today’s student nurses become tomorrow’s nurses and provide care in their communities.
