UPMC Schools of Nursing Activities and Services

UPMC Content 2

At UPMC Schools of Nursing, we want to provide the resources and activities to help you transition from student to nursing professional.

The Schools of Nursing Ambassador Program

Our Ambassador program pairs an exceptional second-year nursing student with a first-year student.

The second-year student ambassador offers tips for success and important information about clinical sites and other student resources.

This provides the first-year nursing student with basic support and guidance as needed.

» See the UPMC Schools of Nursing Ambassador Program Policy (PDF) to learn more.

SNAP (Student Nurses' Association of Pennsylvania)

The goals of SNAP are to introduce UPMC student nurses to a professional organization and promote leadership.

SNAP members:

  • Participate in educational meetings.
  • Organize charitable events.
  • Attend conferences with student nurses across Pennsylvania.

Mentorship Program at the Schools of Nursing

In the final semester of the nursing program, we pair students with professional nurses. The student will follow the nurse's schedule, and gradually take on more responsibility for patient care.

This valuable mentor program gives the student nurse time to grow in confidence and skill, while still having a well-trained nurse as a source of support.

The Lifesolutions Program

Stressed? Problems in your personal life? Need someone to talk to? TheLifeSolutions service is free to UPMC Schools of Nursing students.

You can receive six sessions per problem with a mental health professional.

Schools of Nursing Student Life 

Each campus in the UPMC Schools of Nursing family is in a different area of Pittsburgh and at a different sponsor hospital. Each hospital and surrounding neighborhood has its own personality and pace.

Though the neighborhood and campus may be different, all student nurses will receive the same:

  • Excellent clinical experiences.
  • Exceptional academic courses.
  • Dedication to student success.
