Advanced Education for Nurses
UPMC recognizes the importance of education within our nursing workforce. Education provides science to the nursing profession and is the backbone of evidence-based practice. Western Pennsylvania is fortunate to have numerous nursing schools offering three different entry-level programs into the nursing profession (diploma, associate, and baccalaureate). UPMC welcomes nurses at all three entry levels, and strongly encourages them to seek out advanced degrees. To foster continuing education, UPMC works collaboratively with schools to create programs focusing on the advancement of nursing education.
Tuition benefits are part of the many overall benefits offered to UPMC staff.
