Clinical Placement at Geisinger
Each year, Geisinger welcomes over 2,000 nursing students of various levels including LPN, ASN, BSN and CRNP. To help transition nursing students into a clinical placement that aligns with their passion, our nursing education team is there every step of the way. Through a comprehensive onboarding/new hire orientation, as well as ongoing competency and professional development of the nursing care team, our process allows for a smooth shift from classroom to work unit. Additionally, Intern and Extern programs are offered during the summer and provide impactful experiences to spark a thriving career.
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 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.
