Advanced Practice Council
A decade ago, we established the Advanced Practice Council, to ensure Advanced Practice team members have a voice among the organization leadership. The Council’s primary goal is to foster excellence in the Advanced Practice team and work with upper administration on system issues.
Benefits & Support
Through our tuition reimbursement program, eligible employees can now receive up to $3,000 per year toward an undergraduate degree and up to $5,000 per year toward a graduate-level degree. Active full-time and part-time employees (0.5 FTE or greater) are eligible for tuition reimbursement. Employees must be in active status on the first day of classes, and at the time of reimbursement payout.
Scholarships are available to support nurses (both RNs and LPNs) returning to college for advanced nursing degrees. Scholarships are offered at various times throughout the year to supplement the Tuition Reimbursement Benefit. We are thankful to the many generous scholarship donors that support nursing education.
Nursing leadership encourages and supports increased professional growth through continuing education and specialty certification. To demonstrate the commitment to this level of professionalism, there are campus specific reward and recognition programs to support certification review, certification testing and acknowledgment of the achievement.
Nursing is a profession of life-long learning. At Geisinger, our Nursing Education and Leadership Teams help you expand your knowledge, grow your skills, and develop your nursing career. Through one to one instruction; simulation and classroom education; and various types of online educational resources, we can provide you ample ongoing opportunities in both clinical and leadership development.

“Because of Geisinger’s tuition reimbursement program, it was made possible for me to advance my education and obtain a post-master’s certificate as an adult-gerontology acute care nurse practitioner. I am now duel certified in family practice and acute care.”
