Penn Nursing alumni are making a difference around the world — and right here in Philadelphia.

Working at the bedside, lab, desk, podium, or courtroom, alumni leadership and involvement play a crucial a role in our shared community and in the growth of current Penn Nursing students. You ensure the ongoing success of Penn Nursing’s education, practice, and the advancement of its scholars. Many serve as preceptors, lecturers, guest speakers, alumni board members and more. 

The School of Nursing’s commitment to our alumni is lifelong.

From online webinars that help you expand your knowledge, to finding alumni contacts when moving to a new city, to a wide array of volunteer opportunities, there is a place for you here.

There are many ways to stay connected to Penn Nursing. Volunteer as a preceptor for students, serve as an event host in your local city, mentor current students, nominate an outstanding alum for an alumni award, give to the Annual Fund, or talk with students about job opportunities and interview skills.

    Can a $50 donation really make an impact?

    Penn Nursing’s Annual Fund changes lives and helps develop the next generation of bold nurse leaders. The Fund provides additional financial aid, faculty resources, student experiences, and lifelong learning opportunities for students and alumni. But can a $50 donation really make an impact?
