St. Margaret School of Nursing (UPMC St. Margaret School of Nursing) in Pittsburgh, PA, was founded in 1910 and offers a 22-month nursing diploma to students who are preparing for the NCLEX-RN Examination. The school operates two campuses – in Pittsburgh and McKeesport. The school’s mission is “to foster the development of the intentional learner who is prepared to transition to practice as a member of the interdisciplinary health care team.”

The program focuses on developing high level competencies that are needed to deliver safe, quality care. The nursing curriculum consists of evidence-based practice and informatics, and geared to prepare nursing graduates for entry level practice and to attempt the NCLEX-RN exam. The school uses proven education and assessment models such as Christine Tanner’s Model of Clinical Judgment and the Koloroutis Model of Relationship Based Care.

The school’s dedication to community service is reflected in the many classes and events it organizes, which deal with real issues such as diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer’s and arthritis.

St. Margaret School of Nursing has attained several impressive achievements: its graduates’ success rate in the NCLEX-RN exam has been over 90% in the past three years; in the same period, the job placement rate has consistently been above 95%; student satisfaction ratings have consistently exceeded 4 out of 5 for the three years in question.

With under 200 students enrolled and a student to faculty ratio of 8:1, the school provides the ideal balance of group interaction and one-on-one attention, which is one of the key reasons for their success over the years.
