Cedar Haven Announces Partnership with Nightingale College: Experiential Learning HUB for Nursing Students in Central PA & 10% Tuition Discount for Cedar Haven Team-members

Cedar Haven Announces Partnership with Nightingale College: Experiential Learning HUB for Nursing Students in Central PA & 10% Tuition Discount for Cedar Haven Team-members

Cedar Haven Healthcare Center is proud to announce that we are partnering with Nightingale College to offer our staff and the Lebanon community several unique educational opportunities through Nightingale’s accredited online nursing programs.

Nightingale College’s blended distance format allows nursing students in the pre-licensure nursing degree programs (ADN and BSN Programs) to engage in online instruction from the comfort of their own homes, while completing on-ground experiential learning at health care facilities in Central PA like Cedar Haven.

Cedar Haven team-members are eligible to receive a 10% discount on tuition at Nightingale College! Interested candidates can learn more on their website and apply online for one of three semesters / start dates:

Summer 2020 Semester (begins on May 4, 2020)

Fall 2020 Semester (begins on August 31, 2020)

Spring 2021 Semester (begins on January 4, 2021)

(Please note that all new learners are required to enroll and complete Nightingale’s College Readiness Online Seminar, which begins a month before the start dates listed above).

Candidates who already have their RN license and are interested in pursuing their BSN degree in order to further their careers and improve their clinical skills may consider Nightingale’s CCNE-accredited and fully online RN-to-BSN Program. Nightingale also offers an Associate Degree in Nursing Program and a BSN Degree Program that may interest some of our current CNAs, LPNs, or auxiliary staff members. You can request more information about their programs at http://nightingale.edu/request-info.

Nightingale College boasts no wait list as well as personalized attention from a dedicated faculty. They also offer advanced placement for LPNs who wish to enter their programs.

This partnership is an exciting development for Cedar Haven as we strive to provide the highest-quality care for our residents every day. We are highly committed to supporting and spearheading healthcare education initiatives, including our established NAT (Nursing Assistant Trainee) Program which allows for in-house training for Certified Nursing Assistants by Cedar Haven’s own Staff Education department.

Cedar Haven is thrilled to expand our list of educational partners by welcoming Nightingale College to Cedar Haven in this manner. In doing so, Cedar Haven has provided space for Nightingale’s experiential learning efforts, which include access to computer-operated nursing mannequins and other helpful resources. Together, we can improve healthcare and educate new nurses for the benefit of the Central Pennsylvania Community.

If you are interested in learning more about Nightingale College’s Nursing Programs, please save the date for the Launch Event at Cedar Haven Healthcare Center on February 6th at 6pm (doors open at 5:30pm) or request information today at  http://nightingale.edu/request-info.

Cedar Haven is Thankful for… our Stellar Team + Walking Tacos

Cedar Haven is Thankful for… our Stellar Team + Walking Tacos

Thankfulness is defined as the awareness and appreciation of good things as well as the expression of gratitude. At Cedar Haven, November held many reasons to be thankful and express our gratitude.

The Cedar Haven team is a remarkable group of individuals who are dedicated to caring for and improving quality of life for our residents. Earlier in November we distributed grocery store gift cards as a small way to show our appreciation to the team. Last week, we set up a “Walking Taco” bar in our Administrator’s office as a way of saying THANK YOU for your dedication and commitment to caring for our residents with excellence. A “walking taco” is a taco salad assembled inside a Doritos chip bag. Team members also had a chance to enter their names into a drawing for YETI mugs. Please enjoy the pictures from this event and join us in saying “thanks” to the team the next time you see them!

From all of us at Cedar Haven, we wish you and your family a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

 

Thank you Cedar Haven Team… we appreciate you!
