  • Innovation at Work

    Penn Nursing has always been committed to innovation. From the very moment we opened our doors, our faculty and students have been at the forefront of advancing discoveries, developing policies and practices to support and promote health, improving quality of care, and designing technologies to make “health” an easy option. Innovation is a critical component of our work, and will continue to be—because now more than ever, we need to address the rapid changes that affect health and health care.
