Dean On the Road

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

Dean Villarruel is traveling across the country to meet alumni and friends. We hope you will join us as she shares her vision for “Leading to a Healthier Future.” 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.

Alumni and friends are invited to hear Dean Villarruel and dialogue about a vision for the 21st Century.
