Academic Advising

Allow us to lead your way.

Penn Nursing students benefit from a dual advising structure. All students are assigned a faculty advisor and have access to the professional staff advisors in the Office of Academic Affairs.

Academic advising through the Office of Academic Affairs can be conducted in person, via Zoom, or through a phone call. Students are welcome to email to discuss a question or schedule an appointment.
