Occupation: Paladino is an associate professor in Carlow University's School of Nursing. Her speciality is medical-surgical nursing.
Background: Paladino earned her registered nursing diploma from UPMC Shadyside in 1978. She worked as a nurse for 10 years at Jefferson Regional Medical Center, serving as nurse manager for seven. She earned a bachelor's of science degree in nursing at La Roche College in 1987 and a master's of science degree in nursing, specializing in nursing education, from Duquesne University in 1994.

Quote: "I always thought even when I was young that I would like to teach. (At Jefferson Regional) I was around a lot of students as the nurse manager and I would get to see what faculty was doing with them in the clinical setting. It seemed like a nice job to have."

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
