Outreach is focused on meeting the educational and service needs in the community beyond the walls of the Ross and Carol Nese College of Nursing in order to support our mission to improve the health of all people in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the nation, and the world. Our college is geographically dispersed and our outreach efforts are designed to connect with other campuses and colleges throughout the university as well as with the broader community. We strive to provide high-quality learning opportunities to support nursing practice in the Commonwealth and beyond.
