PhD Students

Welcome and congratulations on your acceptance to the PhD program at Penn Nursing!

New Student Orientation

The first step on your journey–a full day orientation at Penn Nursing.

You’ll learn about academic opportunities, support services, financial aid, technology–and more!–while getting a chance to interact with faculty, staff and fellow students. Please plan to arrive on campus early enough to be in attendance for new PhD student events the week before class start. Details are listed below.

Workshops will be held to prepare the incoming PhD student cohort for the rigors of the first-year experience. Reserve the date: Friday, August 23, 2024

Teaching Assistant Training

If you will be a new teaching assistant in Fall 2024, please save the dates for the required TA training: August 20-22, 2024
