Penn Nursing Leadership and Loyalty

We are grateful for the many alumni and friends whose consistent and generous support makes them leaders in strengthening Penn Nursing’s mission of advancing science, promoting equity, demonstrating practice excellence, and preparing leaders in the discipline of nursing.

The Cedar Society

Established in 2022, the Cedar Society honors alumni and friends who have financially supported the Penn Nursing Annual Fund for the past three or more consecutive years. Cedar Society members are designated in the School’s Honor Roll and will be invited to participate in special events and opportunities. The Society takes its name from the branch of cedar which is symbolized on the original pin for the School of Nursing and represents the nursing qualities of tenderness and compassion.
