School of Nursing


Nursing students practice at the SIM lab.


The GW School of Nursing (SON) arrived at precisely the right time and in the right place.

Founded in 2010, we are committed to excellence.

GW Nursing develops nursing leaders who are actively engaged in:

  • health promotion
  • patient advocacy
  • health care innovation

We are a school on the move. And we need your support.
