BJC | Nurses across BJC have been furthering their education and career by earning a master of science in nursing (MSN) degree from Webster University through its partnership with the BJC Institute for Learning and Development (BILD) that began in 2012.
A new cohort begins in January 2019. Nurses interested in pursuing this advanced nursing degree have the opportunity to follow an educator or leadership focus, but they don’t need to decide at the time of enrollment.
“If the student already has a preference, we like to know it, but it’s not required,” says John Weseman, Webster University graduate admissions counselor. “The cohort doesn’t split into two tracks until later in the program, so a student has time to decide or even change his or her mind.
“Teachers lead and leaders teach, so I generally suggest choosing the route where the courses sound the most interesting to students,” he adds.
“Due to the discounted tuition through Webster, most full-time, benefit-eligible employees will pay about $2,000, plus books, for the entire program,” says Beth Camp, BILD senior learning and development consultant. “Since the program is offered as a cohort, tuition-eligible employees won’t need to pay any tuition upfront.
“This is one of many rewarding academic partnerships BJC offers in conjunction with Webster University,” Camp adds. “Previous graduates have gone on to fill both leadership and educator roles, while making a difference serving BJC and the community.”
