As a student nurse, your classroom is not only on campus, but also at the patient's bedside. This means that you must promote the safety, privacy, and dignity of the people who are allowing you to care for them.
This broad set of guidelines will help you get a sense of the clinical and academic responsibilities of students at UPMC Schools of Nursing.
The role of a student nurse is physically, emotionally, and cognitively challenging. Please keep in mind that you have the support of your faculty members and health care staff at UPMC Schools of Nursing.
We're here to help you achieve your academic goals and provide exceptional care for patients and their families.
For more details about the student nurse's essential functions, see our UPMC Schools of Nursing student nurse position description (PDF).
