Through community partnerships with healthcare providers such as Memorial Medical Center, Somerset Hospital, Altoona Regional Hospital, and Select Specialty Hospital, students receive real-world preparation through high-quality clinical experiences.

The four-year Bachelor of Science degree in nursing is the critical first step for a career in professional nursing and is recognized by:
