Pittsburgh Nursing Education Center
Steel City, home to our ABSN program — no matter what you call it, Pittsburgh is a great place to start your nursing career. With a metro population of more than 2 million, it’s also known as the City of Bridges, a fitting moniker given how well the city’s growing health care industry connects to its demand for qualified registered nurses who have BSNs.
If enrolling in our ABSN program requires you to relocate to Pittsburgh, you’ll find the Steel City is full of other strengths, too. 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 and become a nurse in Pittsburgh.

In fact, the city anticipates a projected growth rate of 13 percent a year in the nursing profession between 2015 and 2025, according to a 2016 report.
