The Penn Nursing StorySlam is a partnership between Penn Nursing, Penn Medicine, and First Person Arts that brings together nurse storytellers from Penn Nursing and Penn Medicine to share their true, personal stories that explore the breadth, depth, and diversity of nursing. 

This year’s Nursing StorySlam will take place online on February 22, 2024 from 7 pm – 8:30 pm ET.

Special opening storytelling performance by Kelli Dunham: Funny person, serious subjects. Stand-up comic. RN. Author. Storyteller. Ex-nun.

This year’s event theme is Perseverance. The Oxford English Dictionary defines perseverance as “doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.” Perseverance therefore is a state of being for innovators and entrepreneurs. Failure may happen along the way, and that’s ok. It’s about persisting on the journey, learning, and adapting. Achieving success means something different for everyone,

Share with us what it means to you on your journey. If these last few years have taught us nothing else, it’s that nurses are more persistent than ever. and we want to hear your stories of how you have moved forward, in spite of, or because of, difficulty.

The inaugural event was held in February 2019. Now in its fifth year, the Nursing Story Slam is supported through the generosity of Sandy Samberg, Nu’94, GNu’95, and her husband, Joe Samberg.

The event is a partnership between Penn Nursing, Penn Medicine, and First Person Arts.
