Pittsburgh Nursing Education Center
Whether you call it Steel City or Pittsburgh, the home of our Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program is a great place to start your nursing career. With a metro population of more than two million people, Pittsburgh is also known as the City of Bridges, a fitting moniker for how well the city’s growing health care industry connects with the demand for qualified registered nurses who have Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degrees.
If enrolling in our ABSN program requires you to relocate to Pittsburgh, you’ll find that the Steel City is also full of other advantages. The city offers a great mix of culture, outdoor activities, entertainment, and — most importantly — job opportunities, making it no surprise that Pittsburgh is ranked as a top job market for millennials.
For all these reasons and more, there’s never been a better time to enroll in our 16 month ABSN program to become a nurse in Pittsburgh.
