Moravian University and St. Luke’s University Health Network (SLUHN) announced an agreement to expand tuition discounts on graduate and certificate programs for SLUHN employees and their family members. In addition, scholarships for full-time undergraduate students are now available for the family members of SLUHN employees. Moravian University and St. Luke’s have partnered on many initiatives together, including an automatic pathway from RN to BSN for all students of St. Luke’s School of Nursing and the recently opened St. Luke’s Psychiatric Associates office on Moravian’s Main Street campus.
“Everyone at Moravian is excited to announce the discounts and scholarships that are now available for St. Luke’s employees and their families,” commented Bryon L. Grigsby, president of Moravian University. “As longtime partners of Moravian, St. Luke’s provides outstanding healthcare for the Lehigh Valley community and beyond. We’re confident these initiatives will provide excellent opportunities for St. Luke’s staff and their families, which in turn will benefit the entire community.”
Each SLUHN employee family member that is accepted to Moravian University as a full-time undergraduate student can receive up to $26,000 per year in scholarships or $104,000 over four years. Student aid packages could exceed $26,000 per year based on individual criteria.
“We are grateful to Moravian for extending this wonderful benefit to St. Luke’s employees,” said Evan Ochs, senior vice president of human resources at St. Luke’s. “St. Luke’s takes great pride in working with local partners such as Moravian University to cultivate home-grown medical talent that will meet our region’s health care needs well into the future. In addition, this arrangement is another example of the generous benefits St. Luke’s offers our employees when they join our team.”
SLUHN employees and family members will receive discounted tuition on continuing education programs including the Adult Degree Completion program or RN to BSN, as well as graduate degree programs such as MSN Clinical Nurse Leader, MBA, MHA, and Master of Arts in Clinical Counseling. Graduate certificate programs include Health Management, Data Analytics, Supply Chain Management and more.
