Health care today is complex and ever-changing, requiring leaders who can facilitate safe, high-quality care and develop innovative approaches to both improving and creating new care delivery models.

As director of Penn Nursing’s Doctor of Nursing Practice in Executive Leadership (DNPEL) track, and Nursing & Healthcare Administration and Leadership master’s programs, and backed by her experience as both a hospital administrator at Johns Hopkins Hospital and a nurse practitioner in primary care, Dr. Keim is helping to develop those leaders.

“Our robust multidisciplinary curriculum and supportive inter-professional faculty enable burgeoning nursing leaders to become sought-after administrators and leaders.”
