Practice Professor

Geriatric Nurse Practitioner Susan Renz was born at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, raised by a Penn Nursing alumna, and earned two degrees at Penn Nursing. When she began serving as a preceptor to Penn Nursing students shortly after entering clinical practice, she found that she loved teaching.

“Seeing our nurse practitioner students grow and become ready for practice is my greatest joy.”
