Trine University and MedCerts collaboration brings certifications and college credits to students

February 13, 2023

Trine University has partnered with MedCerts, an online certification training provider in allied healthcare and information technology, to offer eligible individuals access to their full list of programs.

″We’re excited for the opportunity to offer a higher education pathway through Trine to accompany our high-quality healthcare training,” said Craig Sprinkle, CEO at MedCerts, a Stride, Inc. company (NYSE: LRN). “This partnership builds upon our shared commitment to the healthcare and nursing space while preparing the workforce of the future.”

As healthcare shortages surge across the country, certificates are becoming increasingly more important in the industry. According to the Indiana Hospital Association, Indiana will need roughly 5,000 nurses by 2031. This partnership will allow current and prospective MedCerts students the opportunity to earn industry-recognized certifications and take those to Trine for articulated credits that transfer towards an online degree. This is the first academic partnership of MedCerts offering articulated credit transfers for all of their 50-plus healthcare and IT certification programs. Students could earn up to 12 credits, saving upwards of $6,000 long-term in tuition costs.

“As a leader in higher education, we aim to be innovative while remaining flexible as we provide students with the career skills they need,” said Keirsten Eberts, Associate Vice President and Dean of Trine University. “We are always seeking new partnerships and initiatives that prepare students to succeed, lead, and serve, and our collaboration with MedCerts will do just that.”

As a leader in online healthcare, MedCerts has helped more than 50,000 students earn credentials and start new careers in the in-demand fields of healthcare and IT. MedCerts has developed more than 50 immersive online national certification training programs with best-in-class outcomes.
