Pitt-Johnstown Nursing and Health Sciences

Through the Division of Nursing and Health Sciences, Pitt-Johnstown maintains cooperative relationships with healthcare facilities in the greater Johnstown area and in the surrounding counties of west and south-central Pennsylvania. Locally, these relationships include Memorial Medical Center, Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center, Chan Soon-Shiong Research Institute and UPMC Altoona.

Pitt-Johnstown nursing students make significant contributions within the community.

  • Nursing and health students provided 200 clinical hours to Area Agency on Aging senior centers in Somerset, Cambria, Westmoreland and Indiana counties during the fall 2017 term.
  • The students worked more than 800 hours at the Free Medical Clinic, providing support to Cambria County's medically underserved.

Projects involving the Pitt-Johnstown chapter of the Student Nurses Association of Pennsylvania (SNAP) included the providing of therapy dogs for stress management for students, providing financial support to scholarship funds at Pitt-Johnstown, and senior fair work.

Nursing students have a formalized channel through which they assist with meeting healthcare needs of our region by chartering a new club, the Pitt-Johnstown Red Cross Club.
