2017 Benjamin Franklin Scholars in Nursing Cohort Produce BEN Talk Capstone Video

The Penn Nursing cohort is comprised of four members: Kirsten Garza, Elizabeth Sieber, Eva Chau, and Sam Noblejas, and is advised by Honorary Term Professor of Gerontological Nursing School Sarah H. Kagan PhD, RN.
In their BEN Talk, the cohort outlines the importance of preparing nursing students for practice in both primary and specialty ambulatory care settings and summarizes the preliminary results of their study N-SPACE (Nursing Specialty and Primary Ambulatory Care Education).

The Benjamin Franklin Scholars in Nursing program engages students in an intensive academic experience, alongside peers in the College of Arts and Sciences, the Wharton School and in the School of Engineering and Applied Science, to complete the undergraduate nursing major with an intensive liberal arts component.
