Our partnership with Olivet Nazarene University is directly correlated to our continued growth and influence as an association. Our joint efforts allow nurses to continue to be advocates to ensure the highest quality of care for our patients. Olivet recognizes that nurses are at the heart of our state’s efforts to provide health equity for all.

Teacher with Students

Our partnership with ONU has been a story of success for several years. We appreciate the fact that the programs are being brought to where the teachers are rather than the other way around. This resonates deeply with the busy rhythms of our teachers’ lives and opens doors to more possibilities for continuous professional growth. Year after year we are cultivating local expertise with an ongoing support from ONU. Their courses integrate deep disciplinary knowledge with its application in a real classroom. Our teachers receive support from the time they enroll in the program all the way till they graduate and beyond, assisted by the ONU staff in obtaining of their certification from the State Board of Education.

Olivet University has been an excellent academic partner.  They are available to meet with our staff to discuss academic programs. The professional development series are very beneficial to advancing leadership knowledge in a vast array of topics.  I highly recommend them.

Teacher reading with student

Throughout our five years of partnership with Olivet, we have been able to endorse many teachers with ESL/bilingual or Reading. This has been instrumental in helping us with key district implementations of bilingual education and balanced literacy. I am very happy with our partnership and hope it continues for years in the future!
