Partnership in Appalachia creates pathway for nurses to graduate debt free The University of Pikeville (UPIKE) announced its latest partnership with Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) during a signing event held this evening, December 2, at the Elliott School of Nursing. Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear joined UPIKE President Dr. Burton J. Webb and PMC President and Chief Executive Officer Donovan Blackburn in announcing the Rural Health Nursing Fellowship, a new educational and employment opportunity that will not only benefit nursing students but also Appalachia. Students eager to pursue a career in nursing can now earn a two-year associate degree from UPIKE and graduate debt-free by making a commitment to work at PMC upon becoming a licensed RN. With their commitment, the hospital agrees to cover the remaining education costs once financial aid is applied. UPIKE and PMC are innovatively working together to address the ongoing nursing shortage in the commonwealth. Together, they are creating an opportunity for education and employment in a lucrative career path that greatly benefits the people of the region both organizations serve.
Governor Beshear is delighted to see two of the area's largest employers team up to create enriching opportunities for people in Eastern Kentucky
