Penn Nursing Education

Expanding Education Through Collaboration.

Mount Desert Island Hospital offers a robust Nursing Education Program across a wide variety of clinical disciplines. More than 50 workshops and training sessions are offered throughout the year on topics such as pulmonary function testing and sleep studies, radiology, stress testing, as well as general CNA and nursing curricula. MDI Hospital is also a certified American Heart Association Training Center, and offers a full complement of CPR and First Aid courses.

In addition, our nurses benefit from MDI Hospital’s active Penn Medicine Collaborative, which gives Hospital staff the unique opportunity to participate in reciprocal staff exchanges as well as a wide variety of professional education sessions. Since 2010, this first-of-its-kind collaborative has resulted in a total of 70 professional education sessions with over 700 attendees from the MDI Hospital staff and local medical community.
