There are ways you could try to quantify the reach and influence of Penn Nursing. You could look at school rankings, which for the past five years have placed the School in the number one spot in the world. Or you could calculate the amount of research funding it’s been awarded by the National Institutes of Health.
Healthy living and relationships are a central focus of nursing.
Penn Nursing has a reputation for ensuring enough financial aid for its students to make an education at the #1-ranked school of nursing in the world accessible to everyone—but tuition costs are only one part of the equation. Thanks to a new gift from José Ramon Gonzalez, W’89 and Christine Ann Soto, C’89 to the Student Success Fund, students in need have additional resources to experience a full Penn Nursing educational experience.
Faculty—both in their teaching and their research—are an increasingly vital link between nursing and social justice.
The University of Pennsylvania has appointed Carmen Alvarez, PhD, CRNP, CNM, FAAN, a Presidential Professor to Penn Nursing, making her the School’s second such appointment. Alvarez is the first nurse to attain this rank at the University. She is a faculty member in the Department of Family and Community Health.
