All students in the School of Nursing are assigned a faculty advisor and a peer advisor. Students also have access to professional staff advisors in the Office of Student Services. Faculty advisors provide students with mentoring related to their career goals, and serve as a resource for students to discuss the current issues, science, and practices of the nursing profession.
The Office of Student Services partners with the faculty advisors to provide information on registration, degree requirements, dual degrees, minors, study abroad, submatriculation, and University resources. Peer advisors help ease the freshman transition into college and are available to answer their advisees’ questions about student life at Penn. Students remain in touch with their advisors throughout their undergraduate career.
