Traditions

We have a rich history at Penn Nursing—dating back to the late 1800’s—and we celebrate our legacy and our students through annual traditions.

Fall

Every autumn we hold orientation for BSN, MSN, and PhD students, Family Weekend, a State of the School address, and Nursing Career Day.

Spring

In the spring we hold orientation for spring-start master’s students, a week of global health reflections, Wellness Week, and our annual Commencement.

Summer

At the start of our summer session, we have orientation for our summer-start master’s students and for those in our accelerated BSN/BSN-MSN program.
