Student life: Your nursing education

Life at Geisinger Lewistown Hospital School of Nursing

The campus

Located on the campus of Geisinger Lewistown Hospital, the School of Nursing sits in the Learning Center, directly adjacent to the hospital. Geisinger Lewistown Hospital has been part of the Lewistown community for more than 110 years since it first opened in 1908. Over the decades, the campus has grown to include a maternity center, a behavioral health unit, a surgical center, women's health services, a wound healing institute and many outpatient and specialty care services.

In fact, we’re one of the few hospitals with nursing schools in Pennsylvania.

About Lewistown

Nestled in the heart of central Pennsylvania, this quaint, four-county area includes Big Valley, Centre County and the Juniata River Valley. Perfect for adventure seekers and outdoor lovers alike, Lewistown and central PA offer a rural backdrop, picturesque landscapes and the beloved college town of State College, filled with restaurants and shops.
