School of Nursing
You’re considering a career where you touch the lives of patients and their families—patients and families who rely on your skills and compassion to help bring about a positive outcome. That takes a special kind of person. And it requires a special kind of education.
But how healthy are your career prospects? In the Pittsburgh region, an aging population means employers are struggling to keep pace with the demand for skilled professionals, and healthcare occupations are projected to grow nearly twice as fast as the job market overall for the next ten years.* With an education from PTC, you’ll be prepared to meet that demand.
Nurses make unique and distinct contributions to the healthcare system and to society as a whole. The goal of nursing care is to address human needs across the lifespan, and to promote, protect, maintain, and restore health and human dignity. Nurses act as compassionate providers of care. They are leaders, educators, and counselors. PTC has created an Associate in Science, Nursing, to educate the next generation of America’s caregivers.Learn More
