Innovation to improve life and living is what we do.

Every day, we continue to bring brilliant minds together within a first class university and health system, on a campus that fosters robust collaboration in research, education, and practice. This unique setting propels innovation, and has allowed the School’s research to quickly translate from the lab to the bedside to the halls of Congress.

This is the genius of Penn Nursing.

Today our practices are accelerating applications of new research to improve care. Our methods are redesigning the nation’s health care system. Because of our school, lives have been saved, and people in Philadelphia, across the nation, and around the globe are living better.

This is the impact of Penn Nursing.

We are the #1 Nursing School in the world, but we cannot rest on our laurels. Our goal for this campaign is to build upon our legacy of innovation, pushing the envelope and taking risks to impact policy and practice, lead future research and discovery, and prepare the next generation of Penn Nursing leaders. This isn’t about ranking. This isn’t even about legacy. It’s about impact.

This is the vision of Penn Nursing. 

Penn Nursing has never been about leaving work undone. We have always risen to the challenge. We are, and have always been, a school and a community dedicated to making change happen — to innovating not just for care and cures, but for life and living. Each and every one of you can help us write the story of our future and of the future of health care, and together we can continue to drive cutting-edge solutions to some of today’s most challenging health care issues.

This is why we are launching our $60 million Innovating for Life and Living Campaign—to build upon Penn Nursing’s outstanding legacy of innovation.

Join us in making this exciting vision a reality—by supporting the Campaign, by being an advocate, by lending your time and expertise, and by helping to connect us to new opportunities and partners. Now is our time to make a difference together.

We are an amazing community of leaders and agents of change—and we all play a part in our success.

This is the power of Penn Nursing.
Innovating for life and living is what we do.
