Applications being accepted for Fall 2017 enrollment
The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg received approval to add a bachelor’s of science degree in nursing to the 28 majors that it offers undergraduate students. The new four-year degree program is affiliated with the nationally and internationally recognized University of Pittsburgh’s School of Nursing and is accredited through the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
Pitt’s School of Nursing is consistently ranked among the top 10 in U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings. This past year, the program received more than 1,800 applications for approximately 145 places. Pitt-Greensburg’s BSN will follow the same curriculum as the program in Oakland.
“Prospective students can apply now for admission to Pitt-Greensburg for fall 2017,” said J. Wesley Jamison, PhD, past vice president of Academic Affairs, who has worked with the Pitt School of Nursing to bring the program to fruition. “Twenty-five students will be selected for the first cohort, with the goal of 40 students per year in later cohorts.”
Pitt-Greensburg’s nursing program is designed to provide a strong foundation for professional practice in today’s health care environment. The BSN program will prepare students as generalists in nursing who are ready for clinical practice, as well as for continued professional development and graduate education. Graduates will qualify to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for professional licensure as a registered nurse. [Read more…]
