Excelsior College, American Assembly for Men in Nursing establish educational partnership

May 23, 2016 - Philadelphia, PA

The American Assembly for Men in Nursing (AAMN) and Excelsior College today announced a new educational partnership.

Under this agreement, association members and their spouses or domestic partners are eligible for reduced tuition and fees for associate, bachelor, and master degree programs in the School of Nursing, as well as degree programs in Liberal Arts, Health Sciences, Public Service and Business and Technology.

“By establishing an educational partnership with the American Assembly for Men in Nursing, Excelsior College can continue to support AAMN’s commitment to shaping the practice, education, research, and leadership for men in nursing and advancing men's health. Likewise, the educational partnership between AAMN and Excelsior reduces financial barriers for both AAMN members and their spouses that choose to enroll in an Excelsior degree program,” said Chris Normile, healthcare partnership manager at Excelsior College.

“Having been repeatedly named a 'Best School' for men in nursing by the American Assembly for Men in Nursing, Excelsior’s School of Nursing is proud to offer accredited online associate, bachelor, and master degree nursing programs that produce graduates who positively influence nursing care and patient outcomes.”

Excelsior College is an accredited, nonprofit college that specializes in serving the needs of working adults. It provides flexible means for its students – average age of 37 – to earn their degrees through the use of a combination of prior earned credit, Excelsior’s online courses and credit-by-exam program, and evaluated industry and military training programs. In fact, Excelsior College’s largest academic program is the associate degree program in nursing with over 16,000 enrolled students.

Admission to Excelsior’s associate degree program in nursing is open to licensed practical nurses, paramedics, and certain classifications of military corpsmen seeking to become a registered nurse. The bachelor’s degree program serves the needs of registered nurses seeking the next level of academic and professional achievement. The School of Nursing also offers a master’s degree program with specializations in Nursing Leadership and Administration of Health Care Systems, Nursing Informatics, and Nursing Education.

Excelsior’s nursing programs are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN) and designated a 2011-2016 Center of Excellence in Nursing Education by the National League for Nursing, the third such recognition for the School of Nursing. Excelsior is also home to the Tau Kappa at large Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International, Honor Society of Nursing.

“On behalf of AAMN’s Board of Directors, we are very excited to partner with Excelsior College in providing educational assistance to our AAMN membership. Excelsior College has been a strong supporter of AAMN’s Mission and Vision for many years and we value that relationship. I am looking forward to continue strengthening our partnership and advancing men in nursing,” stated Bob Patterson, DNP, MSN, RN, President of AAMN.

Commenting on the new agreement, Excelsior College’s School of Nursing dean, Dr. Mary Lee Pollard, said "This partnership with Excelsior College School of Nursing and the American Assembly for Men in Nursing formalizes a long standing relationship between the two organizations. We share the Assembly's goal to increase the percentage of men at the bedside and look forward to assisting them in reaching this goal.”

Excelsior College looks forward to joining AAMN at their 41st Annual Conference in Miami this coming September. The conference theme is Shifting the Tides: Promoting Diversity and Inclusivity in Nursing. This aligns well with Excelsior’s mission of providing education opportunities to adult learners, particularly those traditionally underrepresented in higher education.
