Full-time employees attending the University Of Maryland School of Nursing are entitled to a maximum reimbursement of $10,000 per calendar year for graduate courses and $6,000 per calendar year for undergraduate courses. The calendar year maximum reimbursement is pro-rated for eligible part-time employees.
Eligible full-time and part-time employees can receive payment of registration and application fees for job-related conferences and seminars, advanced certification review courses, advanced certification examinations, and courses that offer continuing education units (CEUs). The maximum annual benefit is $500 for eligible full-time employees and $250 for eligible part-time employees.
