Education Programs and Partnerships

Providence has deepened its investments in education, establishing a commitment to support educators and students in the communities we serve. This renewed focus on education is a continuation of the work of our founding sisters, who focused on health as well as education when they settled in the Pacific Northwest and California over 175 years ago. It is rooted in our belief that education is an essential component of our vision of Health for a Better World. We know that disparities in education are intimately linked with health challenges, especially for poor and vulnerable populations. The focus on education is also rooted in the broader need for highly trained, compassionate caregivers. We are expecting impending shortages across most clinical areas from technicians to nurses and physicians. We operate 12 education organizations including a university, a high school, a nursing school, seven child development centers, a school of radiography, and a medical laboratory science program.

University of Providence

The University of Providence is a Catholic, liberal arts university, operated by PSJH, featuring an innovative School of Health Professions. Since 1932 UP has prepared students for leading edge careers and continues to do so today through in-person and online learning.

Early Childhood Education

Because PSJH recognizes the crucial part that early childhood education and intervention plays in whole family health, we continue to partner with programs that nurture children and their families from the beginning.

Post-Secondary Education Ministries

Our health system’s unique structure allows us to provide even more education programs. Recognizing that each person’s path is different, Providence’s education ministries include several standalone programs for those who are newly graduated from high school, or who are looking for their next career opportunity. Option for post-secondary education include a lab school, a nursing school, and a radiography tech program.
