UPenn MSN NP program!

Posted

Hello everyone! I am interested in applying to NP school and UPenn is one on my radar. But when I looked at their program it's only one year for NP(MSN). Every other NP program I have looked is at least 2 years, full-time to get an MSN regardless of specialty. So I wanted to ask if anyone knows about the program and what you think. Is Penn's NP program accelerated, that's why it's one year full time?

I know UPenn is an Ivy League, what stats do I need to get accepted? And do they offer scholarships/decent financial aid?

I just checked and it looks like it's 16 months long. I don't think it's accelerated but it is definitely fast paced! I went to a virtual seminar that discussed it if you want a link. 

I know they mentioned that they are looking for experience before applying (at least 1 year).

Thank you very much for your response! Yes a link would be very helpful! Do you know if their program is very well known for making great NP's?

DM me your email and I can send it to you! I'm pretty sure Penn is the #1 nursing school in the world so yes they probably do make great NPs 😂

Hi, so it's not letting me dm you for some reason. I am a fairly new user, so IDK if I am not clicking the right thing? I clicked the envelope sign on your page but it said I have no messages that I can send. 

The reason I am asking around about UPenn is I saw a reddit post by a current student who was saying the NP Program was not good and underfunded. That is why I am trying to get some more info about them. Thing is I cannot seem to find much information posted by students about the UPenn NP Program. Which I find strange because other NP programs like Duke, Maryland, John Hopkins, etc have so much information online whether its thru students or the school. So it just weird to me how UPenn which is Ivy League have minimal info about their program. I even asked someone who is an NP in Philly and she is familiar with students from Hershey's NP Program due to rotations, but not UPenn? I really appreciate you answering my post, I think the recording will be helpful.

I think it's because I have too few posts on here 😞 DM me on IG! replaceable_head and I will forward you the email

I don't have an ig😅. It's OK, thank for your help though.

ahh sorry! I think if you email them they can also forward you a link.
