Nursing Story Slam

The Nursing Story Slam brings together nurse storytellers from Penn Nursing and Penn Medicine to share their true, personal stories that explore the breadth, depth, and diversity of nursing. 

This year’s Nursing Story Slam will take place on February 17, 2021 from 7pm - 8:30pm, and will be held virtually. 

The theme for this year’s event is Stepping Up. This Year of the Nurse and Midwife is like nothing we could have ever imagined with the fight for racial justice and health equity, along with the coronavirus pandemic, nurses have been stepping up in more ways than one. Whether at the bedside, in schools, out on the streets, or in research and innovation labs, you’ll want to hear how nurses are answering the call to make this world a better, safer place for all. 

Storytellers: If you are a Penn Nursing student, faculty, staff, or alumni or a Penn Medicine nurse and would like to apply to be a storyteller, click here for more information.

The inaugural event was held in February 2019. Now in its third year, the Nursing Story Slam is supported through the generosity of Sandy Samberg, Nu’94, GNu’95, and her husband, Joe Samberg. The event is a partnership between Penn Nursing, Penn Medicine, and First Person Arts
