St. Ann’s Community continues Catholic school partnership, provides tuition assistance for eligible employees
Posted on August 9th, 2020
St. Ann’s Community will be continuing its partnership with the Diocese of Rochester Catholic Schools to offer family tuition assistance to nursing employees.
The program, now entering its second year, offers significant tuition reimbursement for children of St. Ann’s nursing employees to attend any one of the Catholic schools in the Rochester Diocese. The program is open to any full or part-time benefit-earning Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) and Registered Nurses (RN) at St. Ann’s Community’s Irondequoit and Webster locations. St. Ann’s also welcomes new RNs or LPNs to participate in the program.
St. Ann’s provides up to $5,000 of tuition assistance per household. The benefit provides eligible employees up to $3,000 (for elementary and middle school level) or up to $5,000 (for high school level) of tuition assistance.
“Continuing this benefit is part of our ongoing effort to attract and retain top nursing talent,” said Bob Bourg, Senior Vice President of Human Resources. “We want to continue to offer meaningful benefits to contribute to our nursing employees’ lives and their families.”
“We know how difficult it can be to send children to private school,” said Michael McRae, President and CEO of St. Ann’s Community. “As an organization founded in the Catholic tradition of excellence, we believe strongly in the value of a Catholic education. If we can help support our nursing employees and defray some of those costs for their families, we see it as a win-win.”
St. Ann’s Community has a rich history of investing in their workforce through programs such as college tuition reimbursement, awarding scholarships and giving of grants. St. Ann’s is excited to continue this program to give back to nursing employees and help them provide their children with a Catholic education.
