Penn Nursing Science
What makes a Penn nurse? A Penn nurse exercises good judgment in clinical decisions and patient and family interactions. A Penn nurse translates curiosity into academic inquiry. A Penn nurse has a strong voice in leadership and policy arenas as well as at the bedside. A Penn nurse has deep engagement in practice, research, and health around the world. A Penn nurse is like no other.
Penn Nursing offers a number of resources and experiences not found at most other schools including a state-of-the-art simulation lab with mannequins responding as patients would, one of the first PACE practices owned and operated by a School of Nursing delivering care to frail elders, classrooms with the latest hospital-based electronic medical records (EMR) technology, and clinical experiences in The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, two of the nation's best.
