Haley named new program director for nursing and radiological science at Pitt-Bradford

1pitt-haley-tammy-jsdkjbkjsdkjhdBRADFORD, Pa. – Dr. Tammy Haley, associate professor of nursing at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, has been named director of the university’s nursing and radiological science programs.

She succeeds Dr. Lisa Fiorentino, associate professor of nursing, who was appointed to serve as the Director of the Center for Rural Health Practice at Pitt-Bradford in late 2013.

Haley has been at Pitt-Bradford since 2003. Her research focuses on women’s health issues, particularly those affecting rural adolescent women and children.

Before entering the classroom as an instructor, Haley practiced as a certified family nurse practitioner specializing in women’s health. She also has experience as a registered nurse in the pediatric and medical-surgical areas.

She earned her doctoral degree in nursing from the University of Pittsburgh in 2012, where she also earned her Master of Science in Nursing and a Master of Public Health.

In her new role, Haley said she would like to continue the high level of performance by Pitt-Bradford students, including above-average scores on the national licensing exam for registered nurses, and increase the number of students with two-year degrees moving on to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

Haley said she would also like to work with Fiorentino, who continues to teach in the nursing program, to continue internships for students at the Center for Rural Health Practice.

Nursing is one of the most popular majors at Pitt-Bradford. Many of Pitt-Bradford’s nursing graduates have stayed in the area to work at health care facilities in the region, according to figures from the Economic and Community Impact Survey conducted by officials from the Center for Social and Urban Research at the University of Pittsburgh.

From December 2000 to August 2010, 548 Pitt-Bradford nursing graduates were employed in the six-county region of Cameron, Elk, McKean, Potter and Warren counties in Pennsylvania, and Cattaraugus County, in New York.

Additionally, of the total number of nurses employed in the region, 55.6 percent were Pitt-Bradford graduates.
