With a long-standing reputation in the tri-state area for the high performance of its graduates, the Mercy Hospital School of Nursing guides nursing students toward professional behaviors and nursing decisions based upon the values of caring, competency, critical thinking, collaboration, responsibility, accountability, integrity, and commitment to holistic care.
We provide graduate medical training for interns and residents in a variety of fields. Students may complete their transitional year training at UPMC Mercy, or participate in several of our affiliated programs or clinical clerkships.
We also strive to provide educational services to prehospital care providers. It is our belief that education plays a major role in achieving and maintaining quality performance. With that in mind, we feel that education needs to be a strong component in any pre-hospital care system.
