    School Overview

    A dynamic and academically rigorous institution, Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences is a private, accredited, four-year college focusing exclusively on the field of health care. Located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, the College attracts a select group of more than 1,600 students to study with faculty who are experts in their specialty areas. Though nursing trainees were on Lancaster General Hospital’s staff when the Hospital opened in 1893, a formal nursing school was not established until 1903. Then called the Lancaster General Hospital School of Nursing, the School offered a three-year nursing training program for single women. The School graduated its first male nurse in 1974. In 2013, as result of two years of branding research, the Lancaster General College of Nursing & Health Sciences announced a new name: The Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences.

    Offering associate, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs, as well as a number of certificate programs, PA College provides professional development for health care workers throughout their career. The college currently offers bachelor's and master's degrees completely online.
