Penn Nursing On the Road

Penn Nursing is On the Road to a city near you!

Dean Villarruel and Penn Nursing faculty are traveling across the country to meet alumni and friends. We hope you will join us to learn more about current health care issues. Increased healthcare technology, improved access to healthcare and the accompanying need for primary care providers, combined with the growing complexities of patient care and a movement to redefine health across diverse communities, provide unique challenges and opportunities to nursing and nurses today.
