Living in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh was once an industrial powerhouse, which makes it a prime destination to take in the grandeur of the Gilded Age.

Pittsburgh has many notable museums, among them the Carnegie Museum of Art whose collection includes more than 100,000 pieces. It’s one of the city’s four Carnegie museums — the others are the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, the Carnegie Science Center, and the Andy Warhol Museum . The latter features an extensive collection of the Pittsburgh-born pop artist’s work and archives. It’s also the largest museum in North America dedicated to a single artist.

For performing arts , you have a choice of gorgeous venues including the Benedum Center, Heinz Hall, and Kelly Strayhorn Theater where you can see the ballet, opera, and symphony orchestra, among other stellar events.

Pittsburgh comprises 90 neighborhoods , so you’ll be able to find something of interest regardless of what your scene is. Are you a foodie?

Nurses are trained in foley insertions requiring further intervention and provide support to other departments in managing patients that are difficult to catheterize.

What can you Expect as a Professional Staff Nurse?
