Experienced RNs & LPNs
At Geisinger, our innovative ideas are inspired by the communities we serve – like our Fresh Food Farmacy, a program that delivers life-saving healthy alternatives to patients with diabetes, and MyCode, one of the first health system genome sequencing programs. And for experienced nurses, we also offer innovative education programs, like our Geisinger Nursing Institute, to encourage a lifelong pursuit of knowledge.
Through professional growth, quality improvement, and interdisciplinary collaboration, we’ve built an innovative culture that allows nurses to grow their skillsets, develop their practice, and leverage their years of experience to build a rewarding, lasting career with impact.
Nursing professional development programs available throughout our locations.
Benefits and 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 leadership encourages and supports increased professional growth through continuing education and specialty certification. To demonstrate the commitment to this level of professionalism, there are campus specific reward and recognition programs to support certification review, certification testing and acknowledgment of the achievement.
Continue to grow as a nursing professional through one of our leadership development programs like Nurses Emerging as Leaders. A formal development program that helps grow future nurse leaders in our system. You can learn and grow with your peers and build a career with a lasting impact not just on your patients, but on the future of health.
Nursing is a profession of life-long learning. To help expand your knowledge and skills, the Geisinger Nursing Education and Leadership Teams provide continuing education and ongoing opportunities in both clinical and leadership development.
Our focus on professional competencies enable nurses to provide optimal patient care and lead teams. We support nursing professional development through: one to one instruction; simulation and classroom education; and various types of online educational resources.
