The Pitt-Johnstown BSN degree will be accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education through Pitt’s School of Nursing.
The UPJ program will combine clinical practice with traditional nursing theory and values that emphasize holistic patient care and will include a capstone course that focuses on rural health issues. Students will develop a theoretical base of biological and behavioral sciences with a foundation in the liberal arts.
Plans are underway at UPJ to begin construction of a $10 million, 20,000-square-foot nursing and health sciences building that will feature classrooms, laboratories and offices.
The project recently received $4 million from the commonwealth’s Put Pennsylvania to Work initiative.
