Our trip to Ecuador with The Global Initiatives March 11-20 was an experience like no other. Working directly in the local community, collaborating with local health care professionals, provided us with a unique opportunity to see health care in a way we had never seen before. One day we walked nine miles through the streets of Tumbaco, going door to door administering Polio vaccines and, in their native language of Spanish, educating families on maintaining immunizations.
A new division of the George Washington University School of Nursing is translating the creativity, expertise, intellectual capacity and innovative spirit of its faculty and staff into new and exciting ventures.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation awarded Dr. Erin Athey a three-year fellowship to support her work addressing mental health issues while providing primary care services for underserved communities at The Care Center, an HIV clinic in Southeast Washington, D.C.
Before he worked at GW, Ed Salsberg founded and served as director for Center for Health Workforce Studies - NY. Mr. Salsberg was also a founding director for the National Center for Health Workforce Analysis at the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), which was established in 2010.
More than a dozen Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) students traveled to Capitol Hill during their on-campus orientation for a special opportunity learn more about how the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services drafts health policy that affects health care professionals nationwide.
Dr. Jean Johnson, founding dean of GW SON, is joining the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) as interim executive director.
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.

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.
