The Washington Hospital School of Nursing provides a twenty-eight (28) month program of study leading to a diploma. The school is fully approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing and is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.

Founded in 1897, the school proudly claims over 4000 alumni and a reputation for a quality nursing program. In keeping with the trends in nursing and nursing education and to meet the needs of the professional nurse and a changing society, the school is affiliated with Waynesburg University. This relationship enables students to earn thirty-four (34) general education credits while working toward their diploma in nursing. The graduates benefit by having a broad educational base for their nursing practice as well as having credits to transfer should they decide to pursue a degree in nursing.

Students enjoy a wide range of clinical experiences, participate in a diversity of patient services, and have the opportunity to work closely with various healthcare team members in realistic settings. A low student/faculty ratio in the School of Nursing allows highly personalized attention to help ensure the development of competent professionals. Students are provided with an intensive in-house computer training program allowing them to competently utilize the hospital’s medical information system.

After completing the challenging diploma program, graduates are qualified to take the national examination leading to licensure as a registered nurse. The School of Nursing enjoys a fine reputation with employers of its graduates
