Going Back to School?

Premier Health supports lifelong learning by providing resources to expand knowledge and to support nursing careers. Nurses seeking undergraduate and graduate degrees are eligible for enhanced tuition assistance.  


Full and part-time nurses (minimum of 32 hours per week) who have successfully completed the initial employment period prior to the beginning of a school term.

Programs of Study

Programs must be approved by Premier Health, offered by an accredited educational institution, and where appropriate, have proper professional accreditation. Nursing-specific educational institutions must be approved by Premier Health and accredited by the NLN CNEA and/or CCNE regulatory bodies.

Tuition Assistance

Premier Health provides tuition remission for nurses who attend select colleges that accept a waiver letter. The waiver letter allows Premier Health to be billed for tuition, which enables the nurse to take classes with little or no out-of-pocket expenses. In addition, tuition reimbursement is offered to nurses who attend properly accredited colleges that do not accept a waiver letter.

Tuition Reimbursement Match

Wright State University and Premier Health have partnered in an effort to further the education of the nursing workforce. Wright State is providing a tuition reimbursement match to benefit-eligible nurses to help defray out-of-pocket expenses while completing the online RN-to-BSN program at Wright State.
