Encouraging Professional Development for UPMC Nurses

UPMC can help you become the best nurse you can be.

Through a wide array of professional development and academic programs, your chances to grow at UPMC are boundless.

The UPMC Center for Nursing Excellence partners with schools of nursing across the region to promote transitions from RN to BSN. These efforts to increase the number of BSNs further enhance our nursing workforce and patient outcomes.

If you're thinking about an advanced degree, our partner schools work with us to give you a number of options.

Talent Round-Up

UPMC is proud to offer nurses the chance to take part in Talent Round-Up — an in-depth and interactive workshop.

The Talent Round-Up helps UPMC nurses re-energize their careers, learn how to prep for interviews, and more.

The two, half-day sessions are full of custom learning opportunities, such as:

  • One-on-one coaching and mentoring by clinical and HR leaders.
  • Networking and meeting with academic partners.
