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.
