We believe that caring for children should be viewed within the context of their physiological, psychosocial, cognitive, and emotional responses, and offer top-ranked graduate programs that provide you with advanced specialization skills on top of a solid foundation in pediatric care.
In addition to an innovative curriculum based on the latest research and practice methods, each of our programs includes clinical experiences at top children’s hospitals and our pediatric critical care concentrations are known for creating national leaders in the field.
For those interested in the lifelong view of health and wellness for infants, children, and adolescents, we offer a program that gives you the skills to care for the smallest patients as they grow and develop.
We offer three concentrations for those interested in pediatric acute care: an acute/chronic care concentration, a critical care concentration, and a one-of-a-kind concentration in pediatric oncology.
The November-December 2017 issue of the Journal of Pediatric Nursing, out now, is a special edition focused on the social determinants of health, and features Penn Nursing faculty, students, and alumna.
