Concurrent Two-Degree Options

Interdisciplinary learning and collaboration are core values of the Penn Nursing experience. That’s why we offer students the opportunity to concurrently pursue other degrees across the university.

Each degree program requires students to submit separate applications although once accepted to the MSN program we share application materials with other programs as possible. Faculty advisors from each program collaborate on developing an efficient and enriching plan of study based on your career interests.
