UPMC Jameson School of Nursing

The UPMC Jameson School of Nursing is a place of action — where modern facilities set the scene for the education of today's student for the important and exciting profession of nursing. 

The student entering our program will be challenged by a stimulating environment but will soon be aware of the inheritance of rich tradition of one of the most respected professions in the world today. Throughout its over 100-year history, more than 2,493 students have graduated from the UPMC Jameson School of Nursing and gone forth to make satisfying and rewarding careers for themselves and worthwhile contributions to their communities, their families, and their country. 

The school was founded in 1895 at the Shenango Valley Training School, part of the 80-bed Shenango Valley Hospital, which first opened its doors in 1893. There was no separate building for the school, and the students were housed in the Hospital itself. 

On May 1, 2016, Jameson Health System and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) announced that Jameson merged in to the UPMC Network. UPMC Jameson now is officially established to deliver world-class health care for the residents of Lawrence County and its surrounding communities. The merger will provide the school of nursing with educational experiences that will assist our students in meeting their student learning outcomes.
