For the Media

Working with the Office of Marketing & Communications for Media Relations Purposes

Our office encourages faculty to work with us in order to successfully promote news that may be of interest to the media and to the University, through our various communication tools: the Penn Nursing web site, Penn Nursing News (digital newsletter), Penn Nursing magazine, Impact (fiscal year report), social media platforms, news releases, event advisories, etc. Items to consider for promotion include: study results selected for publication in high-impact journals, major grants, important collaborations, prominent appointments and significant awards. Faculty can also contact our Office to discuss best practices for media interviews, the use of social media and other communication vehicles. For study results to have the most impact, it is helpful to notify us when findings are first accepted for publication. Our office will work with the publishing journal in order to maintain distribution embargoes that may be placed on the information.

For the Media

Members of the media are encouraged to work with the Office of Marketing & Communications in order to facilitate interview requests and campus visits in a timely fashion. Our School is home to world-renowned nurse researchers and scientists who are available to comment on various health, clinical, academic, historical and policy-related issues. Our experts are media-savvy and are at the forefront of contemporary nursing, clinical and scholarship research.

The safety and privacy of all School of Nursing faculty, staff and students is very important to us. That is why members of the press are required to be escorted by one of our office’s team members, or an appointed representative, while visiting Fagin Hall. Commercial and/or non-media related video productions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the Marketing & Communications team.
