For the George Washington University School of Nursing, it was the largest cohort yet. For many of the students in attendance, it was their first step on the path to a career in nursing.
Governor Terry McAuliffe has called on Dr. Joyce Hahn to serve another four-year term on the Virginia Board of Nursing.
Students in the GW School of Nursing’s online graduate programs came to Washington, D.C., from far and wide, amid the August heat and humidity, for Graduate Orientation.
The George Washington School of Nursing is focused on building its research presence, and Dr. Dana Hines is a strong addition. The new assistant professor focuses on health disparities among gender and sexual minorities living with or at risk for HIV.
Through a GW SON partnership with Camp Dogwood, BSN students dive right in to life as nurses, helping some two dozen children deal with tummy aches, asthma, homesickness, and taking their medication while they stay at camp in Madison, Virginia.
As one of two recently hired professors bringing new depth and direction to the George Washington School of Nursing’s research faculty, Dr. Ashley Darcy-Mahoney looks to improve the lives of children and infants not just here, but across the nation.
The George Washington School of Nursing is honored to have Ed Salsberg join the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) board of directors, an organization that is the crucial bridge between medical education and graduate medical education training in the US. The training patterns directly impact specialty distribution of the physician workforce.
GW SON’s Dr. Dale Lupu received a $600,000 Donaghue Foundation grant for a clinical research project aimed at improving advanced care planning for patients with chronic kidney disease.
Associate Research Professor Lupu is testing how one-on-one coaching by a nurse or social worker compares to simply giving older patients educational brochures about advance care planning.
As health care evolves in the 21st century, one GW SON experts believes society needs to drop some 20th-century biases in order to best serve patients. With the establishment of the Affordable Care Act, more people now have access to care, and experts are worried about a shortage of primary care providers.

Current research suggests that medical error is the third-leading cause of death in the United States, and not just in hospitals. Medical errors happen in every setting. It’s estimated that 22% of Medicare beneficiaries experience harm in skilled nursing homes, costing approximately $2.8 billion per year and almost 60% of these errors were preventable, according to an HHS report.
