Phoebe Hollyer is a senior in the School of Nursing from Wallingford, Pennsylvania, and plans to sub-matriculate into the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner program.
As a former camp counselor and babysitter, Phoebe has long had a love of working with children. Through her recent summer experience in the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Summer Scholars Program (CRISSP), she conducted an independent qualitative research project in the Emergency Department at CHOP and was able to interact with many pediatric nurse practitioners. Through her involvement with Student Nurses at Penn (SNAP), Phoebe has had the opportunity to attend statewide and national conventions and is currently a board member and co-chair of the peer-advising program. She works to organize pairings of incoming students with upperclassmen and coordinates peer-advising events to ensure incoming students have a smooth transition to Penn.
Phoebe has a passion for mentoring younger students, serves as an anatomy and physiology teaching assistant, and frequently tutors other nursing students. With a strong interest in emergency medicine, Phoebe obtained her EMT certification in her sophomore year and has spent time volunteering with Penn’s student run Medical Emergency Response Team (MERT). She is a member of Sigma Theta Tau International: Honor Society of Nursing and has begun taking graduate courses towards her MSN.
