The nurses at UPMC Shadyside work within a large teaching organization that has the feel of a community setting, combined with the energy and excitement of a collaborative practice environment.

Our nurses are supported in their professional development and in their nursing practice. Nurses have the opportunity to become members of one of three councils for staff.
