To Applicants: Thank you for your interest in the School of Nursing & Health Studies (NHS). As you may have read, Georgetown is planning to launch a School of Nursing and a School of Health by July 1, 2022. We expect that NHS’s current academic programs will continue on through these two new schools. We plan for the BSN, the MS in Nursing, the DNAP, the DNP, and the PhD in Nursing will be housed in the planned future School of Nursing. We plan for the BS programs in Global Health, Health Care Management & Policy, and Human Science and the MS program in Health Systems Administration will be housed in the planned future School of Health.  The future organizational homes of these programs will not affect your application – students admitted to any of these programs will become students in the new schools when they are established.

BSN Honors Program

The purpose of this three-semester Honors Program is to allow those students in the undergraduate nursing major with academic potential to be challenged at the highest level. Participants in the Nursing Honors Program will address, through scholarly inquiry, a contemporary issue related to clinical nursing practice.
