Penn Nursing is at the forefront of science, technology, and patient care

From our innovative undergraduate curriculum that uses case-based instruction to bridge the gap between class and clinical to our master’s program specialties that reflect society’s most pressing heathcare needs to our doctoral programs that prepare graduates for leadership roles in academia, government, and industry, a Penn Nursing education is unparalleled.

Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity is fundamental to every course and all programs of study. The International Center for Academic Integrity states that ‘Academic integrity is a commitment, even in the face of adversity, to six fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage. From these values flow principles of behavior that enable academic communities to translate ideals into action.’ Adherence to the University of Pennsylvania Code of Academic Integrity is required of every student in all coursework and all course interactions. Please refer to Penn Nursing guidance on University of Pennsylvania Student Policies.
