UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing Extends Application Deadline to July 1

 UPMC and Harrisburg University today announced the extension of the application deadline for the fall class of the UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing at UPMC Harrisburg. The new school gives area residents the opportunity to pursue a rewarding career in nursing through an affordable, accelerated program. 
UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing at UPMC Harrisburg is a 16-month accelerated diploma program for registered nurses (RNs). First-year students will take pre-nursing courses at Harrisburg University, learn from UPMC faculty and complete over 900 hours of clinical rotations at UPMC Harrisburg and other regional UPMC facilities. Once students graduate and pass the RN licensing examination, they will be well-positioned to earn their bachelor’s degree in nursing from Harrisburg University while maintaining full-time employment. 
The fall 2022 semester will begin in August at Strawberry Square in downtown Harrisburg. 
Scholarship and grant opportunities may be available, and UPMC offers a generous tuition reimbursement program for employees to continue their education, including undergraduate and graduate degrees in nursing. UPMC is also offering a work-study program, where eligible students can work around their class schedule at UPMC while earning their degree. 
Registration for the UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing at UPMC Harrisburg is now open until July 1. For more information, or to start the application process, visit UPMC.com/SON.
