    Thanks for the support. I've been looking for something in a two hour radius, which does encompass Pittsburgh.

    Hey! Live in Ohio, but worked in PA my whole life. Some that accepted students while I was an aide:

    Nugents(Hermitage)
    Hospitality Care Center(Hermitage)
    Countryside Convalescent(Mercer)
    Clepper Manor(Sharon)

    Alot of them got through SRHS school of nursing, but they might be willing to let you come in.

    I am doing an online course, but my preceptorship will be done where I work. The problem is that you are putting another nurse's license on the line, it is not the school.

    Good luck and keep us posted!!!
