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.

Jazmeen Chinn, MS’18

My preceptor is another person who I plan to keep in my life. She has gone out of her way to introduce me to the inner-workings of the health care system, along with insuring that I get my foot in the door and providing me with all the steps necessary to succeed, she is a true mentor.

Raynard Ware, MS’18

Being in D.C. meant having access to health policy wonks not only on the federal but local level, as well. The smaller, cohort structured program was appealing because I wanted to build meaningful relationships with classmates and faculty.
