Hello and welcome to the Penn State College of Nursing Nurses Lounge! 

By combining exceptional academic programs with a vibrant research enterprise, a strong outreach program, and opportunities to study abroad, the Penn State College of Nursing provides a rich, diverse educational experience to future professional and advanced practice nurses, nursing researchers, and nurse educators. This experience is grounded in a student-centered environment with small student-to-faculty ratios which allow students to develop strong, supportive relationships with their professors and with each other. Leadership opportunities also exist through programs such as the Women’s Leadership Initiative or organizations such as the Student Nurse Association of Pennsylvania.

And let’s not forget the benefit of attending Penn State, a world-class university with world-class resources!

So, whether you’re studying in a library with more than 4 million volumes at your disposal, conducting research with one of the country’s leading experts in gerontological nursing, providing nursing care to someone in Appalachia, Africa, or South America, or just making new friends, we hope you’ll see that the Penn State College of Nursing is a great place to begin or advance your nursing career. Whatever your career goal may be, we want to help you reach it!

I encourage you to explore our website and see everything that Penn State and the College of Nursing have to offer.
