Penn Global Nursing Fellowship
Making a difference in global health by providing opportunities both to Penn Nursing’s skilled graduates who wish to engage globally and to host organizations whose work is focused on improving health where resources are most limited.
Supported by limited donor funds, our first match between a Penn Global Nursing Fellow and a host organization was made in 2018 and contributed to the successful creation of a training program for community mental health workers in India. In 2020 more fellowships became possible thanks to the generosity of the Beatrice Renfield Foundation and individual funders.
Penn’s Global Nursing Fellowship Program adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic, actively engaging remotely. Our collaboration with Partners In Health was documented in the June 2021 issue of LINKS MAGAZINE.
