State Board Approves Nursing

Article Body

I am delighted to report that the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing has given approval to begin offering a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree at Pitt-Johnstown. 

This monumental accomplishment positions Pitt-Johnstown to deliver a high-quality nursing program that responds to pressing healthcare needs in our community, and beyond.  This great new chapter in our campus history would not have been possible without the support of our friends in the community, for which we are profoundly grateful.

It is widely recognized that the Commonwealth is experiencing a shortage of workers in the healthcare area and that such a shortage is expected to intensify.  The new BSN degree will enable Pitt-Johnstown to meet that need while strengthening the healthcare workforce in our region.

This program leverages the University of Pittsburgh’s outstanding national reputation for excellence in health education and makes this distinctive Pitt quality education available for our people locally.  We are especially grateful to our colleagues at the University of Pittsburgh, particularly in the School of Nursing, for their unwavering support of this initiative.
