Offering critical, high-quality, advanced education to rural healthcare organizations with an astonishing 50 percent tuition scholarship.

Nursing students work with a professor.

Introducing the Rural Outreach Initiative (ROI), learn more and apply.

The Details

R.O.I. allows your organization to designate up to two current or prospective employees to obtain advanced education. D’Youville will provide a 50 percent tuition scholarship after all aid is applied. The healthcare partner will commit to hosting clinical placements and offering a designated tuition contribution.

The employee-participant will commit to an agreed-upon period of employment post-graduation. The organization’s tuition contribution and duration of employment are at the discretion of the organization.

The Benefits

Rural health providers are able to benefit from the R.O.I program in ways that will address immediate and long-term workforce shortages while also increasing retention through promotion from within their organization.

As our healthcare partners seek to recruit new practitioners at a lower cost and keep professionals in the workforce, D’Youville is here to help train the next generation of leaders and advance the skills of critical employees.

Why D'Youville

 

A Nationally-Ranked University

D’Youville is a nationally-ranked private university headquartered in Buffalo, NY, providing in-seat and online academic programs throughout the world.

Founded upon the principle that we “never refuse to serve,” D’Youville actively persists in building healthy, thriving communities in its midst. From robust community partnerships, to hosting a high school on its campus, to the construction of a multi-million dollar health clinic to serve Buffalo’s West Side, D’Youville continues to answer the call.

After assessing our state’s needs, D’Youville took up the mantle to help address critical workforce shortages in rural communities. R.O.I. was born. So why partner with D’Youville? We are not your typical higher education institution. D’Youville led higher education in response to the COVID-19 crisis. We were first to digitize classrooms, first to execute early-graduation incentives, first to mobilize a B-team for area hospitals, and now first to spread that impact to our neighbors through this groundbreaking program.
