“It’s truly an amazing time to be a nurse at UPMC. We're an organization in which nurses take a leading role in patient care, innovation, and technological advancements across the enterprise. We're proud of the professional careers that our nurses develop. Their practice spans all our campuses and locations — from home health care and assisted-living facilities to our nationally ranked urban hospitals.”
True to lifelong learning, our nurses prove their commitment to excellence in patient care by earning degrees and certifications. Others add to the nursing profession through evidence-based practice, research studies, and grants.
We share knowledge across the region, nation, and world through podium and poster presentations.
UPMC nurses also show leadership as they hold offices in professional organizations. Some receive honors and awards.
