As we begin another year at Penn Nursing, I want to extend my warm thanks to our entire community. With roots in Philadelphia and impact all over the world, our faculty, alumni, students, and staff do incredible work, show enormous compassion, and truly make a difference in the lives of so many. Prejudice, discrimination, and bigotry have no home in nursing; at its core is a universal commitment to care.
