Grove City College Nursing Program Partners with Cleveland Clinic

GROVE CITY, Pa. (WKBN) — Grove City College has signed an agreement with the Cleveland Clinic that will allow nursing students to perform clinical work at the hospital.

“This agreement provides our students with an excellent opportunity to learn and work in a multitude of settings within the vast Cleveland Clinic system. The Cleveland Clinic is one of America’s premier healthcare institutions, and its integration of clinical and hospital care with research and education ensures our students have a strong professional experience,” said Janey A. Roach. , director of the nursing program.

The agreement marks a new milestone for the College’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program, which launched two years ago and will welcome its third class of students this fall.

First-class members, now in their second year, will soon be eligible to begin taking graduate-level courses that require 30 hours of clinical experience in professional settings like those in the Cleveland Clinic system.

Along with the agreement, an anonymous donor has created a need-based scholarship – the Pew Crile Nursing Scholarship Endowment – ​​for senior nursing students to perform their clinical work at a Cleveland Clinic hospital.

The Cleveland Clinic operates 19 hospitals and more than 200 ambulatory care centers in northeast Ohio, southeast Florida, Las Vegas, Canada, London and Abu Dhabi.

The college has also entered into a placement agreement with Allegheny Health Network and is in the process of finalizing pacts with other health systems and regional hospitals.
