“At UE, we’re committed to providing an affordable, accessible education to directly fill needs in our community” said Sharon Gieselman, chair of UE’s department of education. “The transition to teaching program in particular is designed to address the teacher shortage, especially in high need areas.”
Jerrilee LaMar, chair of UE’s nursing department, says the same of the RN to BSN program. “The program focuses on meeting the needs of the adult learner and the working nurse while opening doors for career advancement opportunities that will positively impact the community,” says LaMar.
For the adult learner looking to further their education at the graduate level, UE offers programs in several different subject areas. Some of the programs are available in the evening and in accelerated formats.

“To successfully serve the adult learners with professional and educational growth, it is important to provide flexible options” said Lindsay Roberts, director of UE’s adult education. “To provide the student with the opportunity to directly apply what he or she learns in the classroom to the workplace the next day is extremely valuable.”
