BC3 Nursing Tuition Program Application

Concordia Lutheran Ministries is thrilled to offer an exciting initiative for nursing students at Butler County Community College: a Tuition Assistance Program. The Program will allow nursing students to complete their BC3 Nursing Program (RN or LPN) tuition-free with the added bonus of a secure job at Concordia Lutheran Ministries upon graduation.

Concordia Lutheran Ministries is no longer the small, single-site nursing home it used to be. We are a CARF-accredited Aging Services Network (ASN) and one of the largest, most comprehensive, financially secure nonprofit senior care providers in the country. In western PA alone, our inpatient locations serve thousands of people every day.

Our continuum of care includes retirement living, personal care, assisted living, skilled nursing, outpatient rehab, adult day services, home care, hospice, medical and rehabilitation services, memory care, respite care, and medical equipment. A vital component of our organization is Concordia Visiting Nurses, which, since 1998, has been providing high-quality skilled nursing and a variety of therapy services to people in their own homes.

Nurses at Concordia are very well compensated and have autonomy, critical thinking skills, and the opportunity for advancement. They have the ability to provide multifaceted patient care while also building positive patient and healthcare provider relationships to promote quality care. Not to put it lightly, our nurses are our everyday superheroes, the very lifeblood of our organization who care for patients and residents with high standards and caring hearts. If you would like to graduate debt-free and join this group of strong, talented nurses, the Tuition Assistance Program is for you. And with locations and a home health care presence throughout southwestern PA, you have MANY geographic options.
