Bachelor of Science in Nursing Programs
Colleen Norton - Program Director
Colleen Norton, Ph.D., RN, associate professor of nursing, directs the school's BSN program.
The Department of Nursing offers undergraduate programs in preparation for students who want to enter the nursing profession.
The department offers the traditional, four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing, as well as the 16-month Accelerated Second Degree BSN. These programs are designed to meet the needs of students at various stages in their careers.
During their time at Georgetown, nursing students have access to innovative classroom and clinical education; leading experiential learning facilities, including the Discovery Center and the O'Neill Family Foundation Clinical Simulation Center; diverse clinical sites; and avenues for research and scholarship.
Upon graduation, nursing alumni - who consistently achieve a high, if not perfect, first-time pass rate on the NCLEX-RN - enter the workforce or pursue graduate studies at renowned organizations. Some recent examples:
- MedStar Georgetown University Hospital
- University of Virginia Health System
- MedStar Washington Hospital Center
- New York Presbyterian's Sloane Hospital for Women
- United States Air Force
- Children's National Medical Center
