Director of the Family Nurse Practitioner Program Track

June Treston is the Director of the Family Nurse Practitioner Program Track at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing and has over 25 years of teaching experience in both the academic and clinical settings. A seasoned nurse practitioner, she has been providing patient care for over 30 years through the emergency department at Cooper University Hospital in Camden, New Jersey. She is focused on reducing health disparities for underserved populations and teaching her students to become excellent clinicians as well as future leaders in health care. 

Early in her career, June worked closely with domestic violence victims and families. She started a free on-site health clinic at a battered women’s shelter in southern NJ. She was named the 2007 Volunteer of the Year, awarded through the New Jersey Association on Correction in recognition of the development of a domestic violence health outreach program.  For over a decade she served as the chair of the Cooper Against Domestic Violence program, an interdisciplinary group that brought together community agencies with a goal of improving recognition and treatment of victims and families. In addition, she worked on health policy through the New Jersey Advisory Council on Domestic Violence. At Penn Nursing, she has collaborated on research projects focused on preventing dating violence through teen education. Her extensive experience has translated into the classroom through lectures, case studies, and clinical teaching; providing the education and motivation needed for new practitioners to enter practice as victim advocates. 

“It is an immense honor to teach the next generation of nurse practitioners.  I am always amazed by my students; they come to Penn Nursing with such diverse experience and their passion and dedication to excellence is unmatched. One of my greatest joys is to help them grow and learn, then watch as they graduate and go on to become leaders in health care.”
