Nursing is a global endeavor, and the GW School of Nursing nurtures relationships with several international partners.
Improving the health and well-being of people and communities locally, nationally, and globally is an important part of GW School of Nursing’s mission, and it is exemplified well by Dr. Deborah Chapa and Esther Emard, both members of the school’s faculty.
Dr. Billinda Tebbenhoff, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies, in April received the VALOR Excellence Award for her commitment to helping military veterans pursue nursing education.
Coordinated by the GW Office of Military and Veterans Affairs and presented by Vice Admiral (ret) Mel Williams, Jr., the VALOR award recognizes GW community members who provide exceptional support to GW military members, veterans and their families.
As our profession celebrates Nurses Week (May 6 – 12, 2015), and the GW School of Nursing continues the work of teaching a new generation of nurses, we asked some of our faculty members what nursing means to them.
“Being a nurse offers the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people, every day,” said Dr. Christine Pintz, Associate Dean for Graduate Studies.
Jenn Beck, one of several U.S. military veterans graduating this May from the GW School of Nursing with their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), was also awarded a grant to cover her nursing licensure.
GW’s Operation VALOR awarded the grant, known as the VALOR Professional Credentialing Grant and funded in part by the Shenkman Fund. Four such grants were awarded across George Washington University.
The George Washington University today announced Pamela R. Jeffries as the next dean of the School of Nursing. Dr. Jeffries, who in 2013 was named the Johns Hopkins University inaugural vice provost of digital initiatives, has been a Johns Hopkins professor of nursing since 2009.
