School of Nursing

Nursing students practice at the SIM lab.

The spring of 2020 marked 10 years since GW Nursing was chartered as the 10th school at the George Washington University. During our first decade, we achieved many successes, including recruiting renowned faculty, receiving national recognition for our graduate programs, and launching innovative academic initiatives that will shape future generations of nurses and nurse leaders.

As an unprecedented time on the front lines of a pandemic showed us, educating and preparing skilled and compassionate health are providers is vital to our communities.

As GW Nursing aims to recruit, prepare, and graduate more, qualified providers to shore up our healthcare system, scholarship funding remains critically important.

Please support our future leaders in nursing with a gift today.
