ALERT

Coronavirus (COVID-19) information

Updated June 25, 2020, 8:30 a.m.

At this time, classroom and clinical instruction for the Geisinger Lewistown Hospital School of Nursing will be provided remotely until further notice.

In accordance with guidance issued by the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) and from other health professions organizations, educational leaders at Geisinger have removed all learners from clinical rotations, effective March 17. This decision includes GCSOM, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM), Temple and other visiting medical students, nursing students, advanced practice students, pharmacy students and all other learners who participate in our own programs or who rotate in clinical assignments at Geisinger. Leadership will be monitoring the status of COVID-19 in our communities and will be prepared for a phased return of students to the clinical environment, guided by the priority of safety and the adequacy of personal protective equipment.  

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we continue to take measures to protect the health and well-being of the communities we serve.
