An investment in their future.
A highly selective, Ivy League education
The most selective of all Penn schools, Nursing’s academic programs rank among the very top in the world. Our students learn to become elite practitioners as well as have opportunities to do research, influence public policy, and add a second degree from one of Penn’s other renowned schools— like our dual degree in Nursing and Healthcare Management with Wharton or the ability to begin a JD at Penn Law during their senior year.
Penn Nursing students develop community-based projects with faculty mentors or independently, earn clinical hours working in some of the best hospitals in the country, and pursue their passions here and abroad. They hail from all corners of the globe, a diverse mix of talents and interests that creates an inspiring learning environment.
Our faculty members conduct the research that is being cited across the country— in nursing textbooks, in major newspapers, and in healthcare bills being introduced in Congress. These expert teachers bring practical experience to the classroom, and are called on by governments, major healthcare providers, and their own peers for advice and counsel.
Penn Nursing prepares students for careers in a wide range of areas — from working with patients to conducting cutting edge healthcare research to holding administrative leadership roles. A Penn nurse is like no other — our graduates are some of the most sought-after practitioners, the most innovative researchers, and the most respected nursing leaders in the world.
