Update to Penn Nursing’s Plans for Fall 2021

Dear Students,

The University’s email announcement this morning which included updated guidance on COVID, and the lifting of restrictions on building occupancy and social distancing as a result of declining cases of COVID-19 and vaccination uptake, offers the gateway to plan for a full return to campus for Penn Nursing students for the Fall of 2021. Our goal is return to pre-COVID in-person teaching given classroom availability.

Details will follow, as University, City, and Commonwealth changes are occurring daily, and we will need to follow guidance. Updates to plans will be communicated to you as we know them in the newsletter that Dr. Costanzo sends regularly via email.

But the good news - we look forward to seeing you in-person in Fall 2021!
