BANKSTREET COLLEGE OF EDUCATION
Meteor Learning is partnering with Bank Street Graduate School of Education, a recognized leader in teacher and leader preparation, to launch at least seven new nationally focused online master’s degree programs in teacher certification and school and district leadership. These programs will provide aspiring educators across the country with access to the Bank Street approach to teaching and learning, continuing to build a strong pipeline of committed and prepared educators and helping to address the projected national teacher shortage.
Bank Street’s online programs will combine the convenience of online coursework with Bank Street’s unique approach to teaching and their renowned supervised fieldwork experiences, helping and supporting graduate students to connect theory with practice and become well-prepared educators and leaders. With a projected growth of 700,000 additional students attending public elementary and secondary schools every year, along with projected teacher and leadership shortages in many areas, there is more need than ever for a nationally recognized leader such as Bank Street to step in and provide access to their high-quality, well-regarded teacher and leadership preparation programs. Online programs for teacher certification include dual certification in general and special education at the Childhood (grades 1-6) and Early Childhood (birth through grade 2) levels, Childhood and Early Childhood special education certification.

In Partnership with Boston College, Meteor Learning helped launch a workforce-aligned Master of Healthcare Administration degree, which is specifically designed for healthcare professionals who are seeking to take on new or expanded leadership opportunities.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that demand for medical and health services managers is projected to increase by 17% between 2014 and 2024, outpacing increases for all other occupations. By offering a new workforce aligned, online Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) degree, Boston College is helping to meet this demand. Designed with critical input from leading industry healthcare professionals, the curriculum is designed in such a way that students master the skills that healthcare employers are looking for when they make hiring and promotion decisions. For experienced healthcare professionals aspiring to expanded leadership roles in the healthcare sector, Boston College is positioned to help them reach their goals.

HOUSTON BAPTIST UNIVERSITY (HBU)
Meteor Learning partnered with Houston Baptist University to launch a differentiated online, competency-based RN to BSN program, designed by healthcare employers for busy working professionals.
Based on industry research showing better patient outcomes in settings that employ a higher number of BSN-qualified nurses, The Institute of Medicine has recommended that 80 percent of nurses in the United States hold at least a baccalaureate in nursing (BSN) by the year 2020. BSN penetration in Texas, however, is well below the national target. In addition, Texas is forecasting an increased demand for nurses based on population growth and an aging population. As Texas healthcare employers are taking major steps to increase the BSN workforce, Houston Baptist University (HBU) responded with a 100% online, accelerated, competency-based RN to BSN program. Designed in partnership with local employers, HBU’s RN to BSN program equips nurses with the advanced skills needed to succeed in today’s medical settings.
"The HBU team works with you. They want you to succeed. If you are ready to go forward with your degree, this is the best program for you." - RN-to-BSN student at HBU
Meteor Learning partnered with Merrimack College to launch an online, competency-based M.Ed. to help working professionals advance their careers and fill districts’ skills gaps.
A substantial portion of education career opportunities are fueled by licensure. For busy teachers in Massachusetts, however, there are limited opportunities to earn a master’s degree while working full-time. Merrimack College’s online, competency-based M.Ed. is convenient for working professionals - allowing students to move quickly through what they already know by demonstrating mastery of skills and knowledge and focusing on what they need to know. Students can earn a M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction, Elementary Education, English as a Second Language, Moderate Disabilities and can also earn an add-on license in Moderate Disabilities. Merrimack’s M.Ed. was designed in collaboration with leading school districts which insures that teachers are acquiring the skills and knowledge most valuable to school employers.
"With the online competency-based format, I have the ability to progress at my own pace through the course objectives. As a full-time teacher and mom with two teenage boys, life is pretty busy. Without question, this program has provided the most flexibility of any program I have ever taken."
