Ohio Valley Hospital is proud to be part of the furthering of healthcare education in Western Pennsylvania.

For nearly 120 years, our School of Nursing has welcomed future Registered Nurses through our halls, ensuring they received the training necessary to be successful in their chosen field.

With both of our schools, our class sizes are kept small, so that each individual student receives the care and attention they require to succeed. Many of our students go on to work for our Hospital and in other local communities. Our education programs are linked with other colleges, so that our students may go on to complete Bachelor’s degrees in their chosen majors.

Our Hospital also receives interns and job shadowing students from other area academic institutions, as we believe the more education we provide, the better Pittsburgh healthcare will be!

For more information, please look at the sections dedicated to our School of Nursing and our School of Radiography. You can also keep up with our students on social media!
