March 30, 2023, Williston, ND - CHI St. Alexius Health is proud to announce its partnership with Williston State College and the University of Mary nursing program by funding two seats in the nursing program.
“The partnership between the University of Mary and Williston State College is a big win for our Williston community. “Says CHI St. Alexius Health’s President Garrick Hyde. He also says, “Nursing students who previously had to leave Williston if they wanted a four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree can now do all four years at Williston State College. Studies show that when North Dakota undergraduates leave their hometowns for their third and fourth years of college, they often take jobs elsewhere and do not return home. We are excited for this new path where local nursing graduates can stay in Williston where they are needed.”
The students of Williston State College currently do their practicums at CHI St. Alexius Health Williston. The facility is eager to collaborate with not only Williston State College but also the University of Mary to increase the educational opportunities for the residents of Williams County and the surrounding area.
CHI St. Alexius health also offers tuition assistance programs to their current employees looking to further their education. To see the current list of job openings, please visit https://www.chistalexiushealth.org/williston/careers-williston.
