Welcome to Penn Nursing.  

There are so many reasons you might choose to become a Penn Nurse. Is it the prospect of studying with renowned faculty at one of the nation’s elite research universities? Or is it the access to world-class clinical and research opportunities? It could be our incredibly ambitious, tight-knit, and supportive student body. Or the fact that our alumni are leading nursing science and practice, and are changing the face of healthcare everyday, in every setting imaginable.

We hope you’ll join us.

Master’s and post-master’s program applicants

You’ll apply directly through the Office of Admission in the School of Nursing, but you’ll want to check your program of interest to see if it has any additional requirements.

Doctoral applicants

Our PhD, Post-Master’s DNP, and DNP for Nurse Anesthetists programs each have their own application deadlines and requirements. We are highly engaged with our doctoral applicants, and eventually require an interview for qualified candidates.
