Founded in 1939, the University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing has been educating nursing professionals, researchers, and educators for more than 75 years. Over that period, the School has built a strong reputation for advancing nursing science, education and practice. The School’s Doctor of Nursing Practice program is ranked eighth by U.S. News & World Report 2017 Best Nursing Graduate Schools, and sixth in NIH research funding awarded. Pitt Nursing has been ranked twelfth in the 2016 QS World University Rankings by Subject.  The School is also designated as a Research Intensive Environment by the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) and has three active National Research Service Awards – Institutional Research Training Grants (T32s).

Successful candidates will contribute greatly to the academic rigor and scholarship of the School and the University of Pittsburgh, an elected member of the Association of American Universities — an invitation-only organization of 61 preeminent doctorate-granting research institutions in the United States and Canada. Pitt is highly placed in The Princeton Review’s 2017 edition of its annual college guide, ranked 37th among U.S. institutions in The Times Higher Education World Universities 2016 rankings, and is No. 4 among U.S. institutions in The Scientist’s “Best Places to Work in Academia” 2013 survey. Pitt attracts faculty from around the world thanks to its research intensive environment, pleasant and accessible hometown, and (in the case of health sciences faculty) amazing clinical opportunities with world-class care facilities and research entities. Pitt faculty members have earned such prestigious honors as the National Medal of Science, the MacArthur Foundation’s “genius” grant, the Lasker-DeBakey Clinical Medical Research Award, and election to both the National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine.
