Former PA College
Campus to House
Medical Museum
The Lancaster Medical Heritage Museum has relocated to
the North Lime Street building that until 2016 housed
Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences. The Museum
was founded in 1982 to collect and make accessible our
community's rich medical heritage through exhibits,
education and research. The new location will house their
entire 14,000-object collection, as well as a research library
and archive.
The Museum serves to educate the public - including
medical practitioners and those with a passing interest in
medicine - on the different specialties and the history of
medicine. The new location provides the Museum with
four times the space it had previously, enabling the staff
to plan bigger and better exhibitions on various topics.
The expanded area will also enable them to broaden their
educational programming, with lectures by local medical
leaders and historians and fun experiences such as trivia
nights and " Medical School Monday " - a chance for
children and aspiring health care professionals to speak
with physicians and other experts.
Now under construction, the Museum will open to the
public this fall, with permanent exhibits ranging from
family medicine to ophthalmology to dentistry. Temporary
displays will explore topics such as the role of women in
nursing and health care. For information about visiting
the Museum or to learn more about its collections, visit
lancastermedicalheritagemuseum.org.
Launched in 2019, the PA College MSN Nurse Practitioner
program graduated its first cohort of 11 students in 2021. All
passed the national board certification exams on their first
attempt.
The PA College Nurse Practitioner program offers three
different tracks at both the MSN and post-MSN certificate
level: Adult-Gerontology Acute Care, Family-Individual
Across the Lifespan and Psychiatric-Mental Health.
Dean of Nursing Cheryl Grab '77, EdD, MSN, RN considers
the 100% exam passage rate " a strong indicator that the
didactic and clinical courses in our NP tracks prepare nurses
with the specialized knowledge and clinical competencies
needed to practice successfully in primary care, acute care
and long-term health care settings. "
In 2022, 18 Nurse Practitioner students graduated: eight in
Adult-Gerontology Acute Care, nine in Family-Individual
and one, the first, in Psychiatric-Mental Health.
You know the impact a PA College education
can have on someone entering the health
care field. Yet for an ever-increasing number
of students like Alesha, the cost of higher
education is a barrier to following their dreams.
Your support can help change this trend.
