Partnering to advance nursing education

Accelerated BSN, Cohort 5
Family Nurse Practitioner

The Accelerated BSN program at GW gave me confidence in my abilities I would need to succeed at the graduate level. I graduated in Spring 2014 and began the Family Nurse Practitioner master’s program in Spring 2015. I could not be happier with my decision to come to GW.
