The mission of the Doctoral Student Organization (DSO) of the University of Pennsylvania, School of Nursing is to support and encourage students by engaging in professional and social endeavors which will enhance educational experiences while promoting integrity of character, leadership, and organizational skills.
We organize social events to foster a nursing doctoral student community.
Penn Nursing is thrilled to announce that two current PhD candidates, Shoshana Aronowitz and Amanda Bettencourt, have been selected for the competitive National Clinician Scholars Program (NCSP) . The NCSP aims to offer unparalleled training for clinicians as change agents driving policy-relevant research and partnerships to improve health and health care.
Researchers from Penn Nursing and the Annenberg School have found that an immersive Narcan training video is as effective as in-person simulation trainings.
Congratulations to our Newest Doctors
