Salt Lake City, UT – March 15, 2023 Steward’s Jordan Valley Medical Center – West Valley Campus and Joyce University of Nursing and Health Sciences announced a new partnership to boost the number of registered nurses throughout the state.

The inaugural cohort kicked off the pilot program with nine CNA employees from Jordan Valley Medical Center – West Valley Campus (JWV).

The initial cohort began their program in Spring of 2023, with an additional six employees starting the program in May of 2023.

“We’ve always admired Joyce University’s approach to nursing education and are thrilled to help our own employees further develop their careers through Joyce’s programs,” said Martha Gamble, Associate Chief Nursing Officer at Jordan – West Valley. “This program will help our employees and our patients alike as we build up the quality of patient care in our community.”

Joyce University has a rich 40-year history of healthcare education in Utah and provides a variety of nursing pathways for students needing flexibility. The institution has eight program pathways for students entering or advancing their careers in the nursing and healthcare industry.
