College Profile: St Margaret School of Nursing
UPMC St. Margaret has a common mission with all UPMC hospitals — to provide premier programs in patient care, biomedical and health services research, and teaching that contributes to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of human disease and disability.
Founded in 1910, the School of Nursing offers a 76-week diploma nursing program enabling a graduate to take the Pennsylvania licensure examination to become a registered nurse.
The school provides an educational program that assists its graduates to acquire the competencies needed for the practice of professional nursing. The goals of the program are to:
* educate graduates who can fulfill the role and responsibilities of a graduate nurse
* prepare graduates with the ability to assist in meeting the health care needs of the patient, family, and community
* foster the development of professional nursing practice in collaboration with the health care system
The first level of the nursing program consists of three sequential basic nursing courses. Second-level courses involve more complex and interrelated nursing and/or health problems, which affect individuals of all ages. The second level concludes with a nursing issues and management course.
The courses Anatomy and Physiology I with lab, English Composition, and Introduction to Psychology must be taken prior to entering the nursing program. The other college courses may be taken prior to entry or sequentially during the nursing program.
The school of nursing is a commuter school. Conference rooms and classrooms are at the school in Blawnox, 1.8 miles from UPMC St. Margaret. The school includes a demonstration-learning laboratory, faculty offices, and a computer center. The UPMC McKeesport branch campus is located in a newly renovated space on the fourth floor of the Kelly Building.
