Welcome to the School of Nursing at Sharon Regional Health System. The program has been preparing nursing students to practice as Registered Nurses (RN) since 1899. With our current partnership with Penn State Shenango, students have the benefit of taking nursing courses at a hospital based diploma nursing program and college level academic courses at a university that is located one mile from the School of Nursing. Following graduation, the partnership ensures a seamless transition for students to begin the RN to BS in Nursing program at Penn State.
