The Strategic Plan defined a Mission, Vision, and Values Statement, as well as outlined goals for the future.
Mission, Vision, and Values
Since its founding in 1903 as the Georgetown University Hospital Training School for Nurses (with a "first lecture" on the "ethics of nursing"), the school has been committed to situating its work in health care within the broader Catholic, Jesuit mission of the university. Today, the School of Nursing & Health Studies, which houses academic programs in the health sciences, continues that tradition, framing its activities with a Mission, Vision, and Values Statement.
Research, Learning, and Community
Students, faculty, and staff at the School of Nursing & Health Studies create an active learning environment through energizing research endeavors, dynamic educational experiences, and community-based partnerships. This approach includes grant-funded efforts, faculty and student scholarly publications, an intentional focus on the development of undergraduate and graduate student scholarly activities, and enriching collaborations with colleagues in local, national, and global communities.
The School of Nursing & Health Studies is located in St. Mary's Hall on Georgetown University's campus. The address is 3700 Reservoir Road, NW.
