Shaping the Future of Senior Care
What a wonderful choice. As a nurse, you will be present at the high and low moments in people’s lives, from birth to death—and everything in between.
You are making a wise career move. Nurses are reaching retirement age at a pace never seen before, offering you abundant opportunities to find your place in the field of healthcare.
If you’ve helped care for an aging parent or grandparent, or watched someone struggle to maintain his or her quality of life while aging at home alone, you understand the need for well-educated, compassionate nurses in the field of senior care. It’s critical – especially in areas of rural Minnesota.
Through the Ecumen Scholars Program, who will help fill the urgent need for nurses in senior care while enjoying the quintessential lifestyle in beautiful communities such as Alexandria, Detroit Lakes, Fargo-Moorhead, Hutchinson, Litchfield, Mankato, North Branch, Two Harbors and Worthington.
The Ecumen Scholars Program is a partnership between Ecumen, one of the nation’s top 20 largest non-profit providers of senior housing and services, and the Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies.
Ecumen is consistently honored as a “Best Places to Work” by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal and has been named one of Minnesota’s Top Workplaces by the Minneapolis Star Tribune and Minnesota Monthly Magazine.
