Jessica Downing, Nursing Executive Center

In a recent member spotlight webconference, leaders from UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing shared their experience redesigning their curriculum to meet the demands of the evolving health care industry. To teach students new competencies in non-acute nursing care, the new curriculum emphasizes wellness and includes clinical experiences outside the hospital.

To get answers to some frequently asked questions about their curriculum, we sat down with the following nursing leaders from UPMC:

  • Linda Kmetz, Executive Director, UPMC Schools of Nursing; Director, UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing
  • Deborah Struth, Associate Director, Quality Improvement; Curriculum and Faculty, UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing
  • Santa Ann Lake, Nursing Instructor, UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing
