Our nursing department at Pennsylvania Hospital continuously strives to set new standards of excellence in patient care. We offer a challenging and inspiring environment where our nurses can grow both personally and professionally within their practice.

As the nation's first hospital, we have a long history of educating nurses and are at the forefront of providing high quality, patient-focused care.Our goal is to help nurses achieve the highest level of satisfaction from their career whether it is in patient care, leadership, advanced practice or education.

At Pennsylvania Hospital nurses create the nursing culture and have initiated positive change that has revolutionized the practice of nursing. Our nurses were involved in developing our signature model of care, Relationship Based Care, designed to ensure that the patients’ needs always come first. It is also the essence of how we partner with our patients and support each other.

At Pennsylvania Hospital, we look forward to being the place where you can see your nursing career soar. We hope that you will join us.
