Give your son or daughter the advantage of Penn.

Imagine your child at an Ivy League school where admissions are among the most selective in the country. Where opportunities abound for nursing researchers, hospital managers, public policy makers, and patient caregivers. Where your son or daughter could graduate with a joint degree in Healthcare Management from Wharton. Or submatriculate into Penn Law. Or work on federal research grants with their faculty mentors. Imagine your daughter earning clinical hours not just by working in some of the best hospitals in the country, but by studying overseas, supporting safe birth in a Honduran village or soothing sick children in a Jerusalem pediatric ward. Imagine your son learning from professors who are conducting the research that is being cited across the country – in nursing textbooks, in major newspapers, in healthcare bills being introduced in Congress.

A Penn nurse is like no other - our students become the most sought-after practitioners, the most innovative researchers, and the most respected nursing leaders in the world. They are rigorously prepared to care for patients, conduct landmark research, and shape the future of the profession. Our students hail from all corners of the globe, a diverse mix of talents and interests that creates a stimulating learning environment.
