As enrollment continues to grow in the Associate in Science degree in Nursing and the certificate program in Practical Nursing at Pittsburgh Technical College (PTC), we are proud of not only the individuals who are stepping up to answer the call to help and serve our community, but also of the many graduates who have gone before them and are already significantly contributing on the frontlines of healthcare during this global pandemic. Our students and graduates are trained and ready to positively impact patient lives and provide comfort to patients and their families.
The faculty of PTC’s School of Nursing is dedicated to the empowerment of students by facilitating a learning experience that is based on the science of nursing theory and assists each student in realizing their full professional and personal potential. Nursing is a dynamic, evolving field so our students learn concepts and skills that help them prepare for a lifetime of learning and success by emphasizing concepts in therapeutic communication, critical thinking, clinical judgement, social justice, and infusing a lifelong spirit of inquiry.
In addition to the Practical Nursing and Registered Nursing programs, PTC also offers an advanced standing track for current LPNs who want to advance their education to become a Registered Nurse.
