    Any special reason you're thinking of UPenn? We have other Universities here with nursing programs that are less $$$.

    My dad went to UPenn and their nursing program has a strong reputation for treating male nurses exceptionally well .Other than that no real valid or solid reasons for my curiosity.Just wondering if its hype or not.

    Not a grad from U PENN but just remember sometimes the name itself may be better than the program.

    I figured it was more of a brand name deal but wasn't sure.I haven't been here in the States all that long to know the ins and outs
