Shadyside Shool Of Nursing- Pittsburgh

  1. Hi!

    I just applied for the January start date and i was wondering a few things, Some of these questions may be kind of obvious but I want to know a little more about the school, and I was told about this school from get this my CCAC adviser last minute, so I hurried up and applied.

    1. Since Shadyside has three 16 week courses are there 3 different start dates or just 2 (one in August (Fall) and one in January (Spring))

    2. How many days is the school week like 3, 4, 5 days and when does the school day start and end?

    3. What color scrubs are we allowed to wear?

    4. The tuition forgiveness?

    5. Also can someone tell me a little about UPMC Mercy?

    Current Mercy student here!

    There is only 1 start date in August. If you don't have A&P done you will be in class 5 days a week, but if you have it done it will be 4. Most days start at 8am and can end anywhere between 11am and 3pm. Clinicals are 1 day a week first term and 2 days starting second term, 7am_3:30pm. Uniforms are white pants burgundy top...
    If you do tuition forgiveness you will pay a total of 10k, so 2500 each semester.
    Anything else just ask!

    Oh I'm sorry I just seen your post. I'm going in the fall instead and just taking classes at CCAC to help me. I'm taking a Science, Med Term, and Psych 102 (which is the exact same class I would have to take at Shadyside)
