This year we celebrate nurses and recognize all those on the front lines every day during this global pandemic crisis. You are all heroes; thank you!
Created in light of the unprecedented global pandemic we’re experiencing, Dignity Health Global Education, in partnership with Stat Staff Professionals, is giving away a full scholarship to their flagship online program; the DukeCE Certificate in Nurse Leadership. In addition, all applicants will receive a $500 discount and free Strength to Endure micro-course.
Developed for current or aspiring nurse leaders; the 16-week Nurse Leadership course is designed to teach nurses leadership skills through real-world projects and modern, expertly produced content alongside a small cohort of your peers. Participants earn a certificate and digital badges from DukeCE, as well as 64 CEUs.
Although education may be difficult to consider making time for these days; this program is designed to be completed around your schedule in as little as 4 hours per week. Upcoming start-dates include July and October.
Faith Firenze, Stat Staff’s Marketing and Public Relations Lead, shared her experience in completing a DHGE certificate program, Healthcare Marketing.
“Taking the Healthcare Marketing course allowed me to broaden my knowledge by sharing information about the lessons learned with fellow marketers in the course. I was able to learn key strategies to make my marketing plan successful and gained new ideas about best practices in a variety of topics in the healthcare marketing field. I am truly appreciative of this course and being able to apply real world scenarios to my learnings throughout the duration will be highly beneficial for long-term success. Thank you DHGE and Pepperdine School of Business!”
The free micro-course offered to all applicants, Strength to Endure, was designed for frontline healthcare workers in order to strengthen resilience, improve overall well-being, and navigate the incredibly challenging times at present and to come. Recognizing that the same strategies used by elite athletes to endure high-pressure moments could be leveraged by healthcare workers facing immense stress, DHGE teamed up with experts at the University of Exeter to deliver a mobile app-based learning experience and help healthcare workers develop strategies to enable them to function at their best, even under the most difficult conditions. This hour-long course is broken up into short sections so you can easily learn for a few minutes at a time.
