Great program, very expensive. Would recommend program to future students.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

I am a current FNP student at the University of Pennsylvania. So far, the teachers have been very knowledgeable in their field of expertise. At times the financial and student services offices were a bit challenging to navigate for the part time student.

The professors are extremely knowledgeable and will challenge you. The quality of education is absolutely superb and a degree from Penn will make very employable, but it's incredibly expensive. The campus itself is beautiful, but can be dangerous directly off campus/at certain hours of the evening.

Best Graduate Nursing Program in the country. The students work hard and are eager to develop into leaders that change the world! Staff are approachable and really care about their students. Financial aid is ok, but the toughest part is that they don't communicate that well with students, especially via email. Overall, I've had an amazing experience at Penn Nursing!

Graduation Year: 2016

As a student at the University of Pennsylvania I am given access to experts in their field of work, so every class we have an expert teach us the subject - which I find amazing and feel is an amazing opportunity, not only for growth and learning, but also for networking. I work full time as an RN, and go to school part time. I find it to be difficult to get scholarships from my school and outside scholarships due to being a part time student.

The University of Pennsylvania’s School of Nursing’s excellence is supported by its world-renowned faculty and student publications, as well as its emphasis on evidence based practice. As a student in PENN’s nurse practioner program, one has the opportunity to learn and mentor from distinguished faculty and practice at superior clinical sites. The program provides students with a plan of study, clinical sites and clinical preceptors tailored to meet individual objectives. As a PENN graduate student I feel 100% supported in my endeavors and am confident that the school is providing me with the networking and tools necessary to accomplish my career goals.

The U Penn School of Nursing goes above and beyond to train students to weigh the pros and cons of different care practices. A great deal of time is spent learning skills, re-demonstrating skills to teachers safely and then applying these skills in clinical settings. It has been a grueling workload but I am so happy to have come here to such a supportive environment and culture. The alumni are extremely helpful and the faculty are very willing to meet with you to go over questions or prepare for scholarships. The cons are the cost of coming to this school but everything else has been excellent.
